... to the Kildalton High Cross and Old Parish Church. It is only seven miles from the hotel which seemed like a quick trip. As we have learned, it takes a lot longer to get anywhere than we expect.

We're staying in a delightful little Inn/guesthouse at Ballygrant, where the ...

Sea, sky and solitude in Knapdale

... on a rock: I want to join them but irritatingly this beach looks crowded - two people are sitting on it, watched over by Snow White and the Seven Dwarves who have been stationed here in effigy. Never mind, I soon find a beach all to myself, where I can at least hear the seals barking.

The afternoon is wearing on now. I stop off at Kilberry to look at some medieval graveslabs from an old church. From the look of the armoured ...
