Day 4 – Ballantrae to Oban

Two full pages of options for breakfast had us all having a tough time with which of the wonderful options to chose. Breakfast was absolutely amazing! :)

Another great day ahead but none of us were in any hurry to leave the wonderful Glenapp Castle where we had spent the night.

Our first night stop was at the ‘Electric Brae’ – an optical illusion where one is convinced that uphill is in front of you only for a free wheeling car to move forward…. Doesn’t work quite so well with a motorcycle and the bottle of water that we poured on the road to prove this phenomenon seemed to have a mind of its own as it headed neither up nor downhill but went straight towards the ocean…

From the city of Ayr, it was an hour long sprint on the highway to get north of Glasgow where we crossed the Erskine Bridge and headed north to Loch Lomond for our lunch stop. Loch Lomond is probably most known for the song ‘The Bonnies Banks o’ Loch Lomond’. The weather was perfect so we had a longer than usual touch stop to enjoy the views and small beach front of the loch before taking off on the bikes towards Oban.

From Loch Lomond we enjoyed great riding and spectacular views as we made our way through ‘Rest and Be Thankful’ on our way to the popular seaside town of Oban.
