However, we managed to catch the beautiful Loch Striven in amazing light - which was lucky, as on the way back it just looked . . . well, wet! The reflections of the trees and mountains earlier though were just incredible.
It took me ages to work out what loch I was looking at though - that's one of the problems of loads of parts of Scotland - the 4G tends to either be either limited or completely off!
We drove around the Cowal Peninsula in the rain the rest of the time, and eventually had to give up and head back to the hotel for drinks, surrounded by staff putting up Christmas decorations (still too early by the way.) Luckily there is an Italian restaurant which is part of the hotel, which has an interior door so this saved us having to brave the weather again. Phew!
We headed for bed, hoping that the next day would bring us a break in the weather. Did it? Well, you'll have to wait and see . . .
