Day 5 on our way from John o’Groats to Land’s End took us from Inveraray along the coast to Kilmarnock. It was the longest day so far, but comfortably the flattest. We had an un-forecast wet start to the day, but the weather just added to the views, with the mist and drizzle clinging to the foliage alongside the lochs.
Overall it was a rather stop-start day, broken up in particular by (waiting for) the Dunoon ferry. It was also a day of three-quarters, with the final quarter being particularly unpleasant from a road point of view: a few unavoidable bits of dual carriageway and some dreadful road surfaces as we closed in on Kilmarnock.
That all said, everyone’s legs are in fine fettle, offset by a few aching arms and shoulders, and perennially uncomfortable bums.
