My ferry from Islay back to the mainland was at 15:30, and it was a great sail. Sunshine all the way for 2 hours.
From the terminal at Kennacraig I had a 10 minute drive to the next ferry, over in Tarbert (on the other side of the Kintyre Peninsula) at 18:15. The Tarbert to Portavadie trip is 25 minutes - just a short hop. More lovely sunshine, and amazing scenery on both sides of Loch Fyne.
It's another Calmac route - £10.75 one way for the wee Audi and me.
Next came a 40 minute drive to Dunoon for the 3rd ferry - to Gourock. That drive features quite a lot of single track road and spectacular scenery - it was a shame to be driving!
I drove onto the Western Ferries’ 19:30 sailing at 19:27. It's more expensive - £17.10.
A 20 minute voyage on that one. More evening sunshine and wonderful scenery.
The last leg was 1hour 40 minutes in the car to get home.
Who needs an expensive cruise with all these cheap ones on the doorstep?
