OUT TODAY

Well a couple of nights ago actually .... we got two decent summer days during the week ... and now the weekend has arrived so has the rain! :mad:

Thankfully I decided to get out for a blast after work on Wed evening.

This is from the B829 beside Loch Ard ..... up near Aberfoyle, just half an hour ride from Glasgow..:smile. About 8:30 in the evening

You can see why this road is under water sometimes after periods of heavy rain.

Hi Ally.... no unfortunately I didn't have time to do the Duke's Pass as well, at Aberfoyle I had to decide whether to turn right and up to the Dukes Pass or straight on to the Inversnaid road past Loch Ard. You know from the pics which I chose. :winkie: 

Next time maybe?

B829

Cracking bit of road - used to love staying in a time share at Forest Hills and going for a walk down to the The Pier Cafe/Stronachlachar in the morning... shame it's now been sold :wacko:
