The weather today (24th September 2018) was a bit changeable with intermittent showers, so we decided on a little site seeing and then find a good beach for Bandit to have a good runaround.
We went on a drive North along the A844 road from Rothesay towards Ardbeg and Port Bannatyne which are only a few miles away.
We then drove along the A886 towards the Rhubodach Ferry terminal.
The ferry takes you across to Colintraive on The Kyles of Bute
The views from the ferry terminal are beautiful.
We then turned around as the A886 ends at the Rhubanoch ferry terminal. We travelled back to towards Port Bannatyne but stopped for a picture of these 2 beautiful beasts.
We turned right at Port Bannatyne onto the A884 travelled a few miles and turned right at the road sign for Etterick Bay, where oor Bandit finally got his beach runaround.
As you can see from the picture above Bandit already had his runaround 🤗There is a small cafe with toilets at the beach front and some Pods at the rear for hire.
A historic event & achievement took place on this beach in September 1910. Andrew Blain Baird, flew a monoplane of his own design and making.
Before we left Etterick Bay I managed to capture Helen wae her mum & (the elusive) dad.
We headed back towards Rothesay town as we were all getting hungry, especially oor Bandit boy. After we were all fed and settling doon for the night, a low moon appeared just above Rothesay Bay and gave us an early evening glow from our Bay window.

On a wet, windy, dreich day in Orkney, with a head full of the first cold of the season – these images are a tonic.

Hooe you feel better soon.
