Bisecting Scotland from Northeast to Southwest. Brora to Ford (Oban)

A day for getting from A to B. In this case from Brora to Oban following the line of the Great Glen. 208 miles and 5 hours in the saddle. Apart from two periods of rain - the weather was better than expected. Given the constraints of time and weather I have had to bypass Skye and that part of the western coast. I'm spending the night in an out of the way spot called Ford, to the south east of Oban. The Ford Guest House is an old coach inn that has been revived as a cheap BnB. There are only a couple of nearby houses and farms but no pub, so a quiet night.
No mobile coverage and a fairly basic WiFi. Tomorrow I'll head for Glasgow via Inverary. If the weather is fine, may also explore to south, perhaps all the way down to Campbeltown at the bottom of the Kintyre Peninsula.
