The CockOfArran

Laggan Cottage

Anne has recently expressed a desire to walk the Cock of Arran, so today we went off on the ferry to do just that.
An hours crossing then bus to Sannox to begin the walk.
It was very quiet, only the sea lapping on the shore, sometimes a little peep from a robin, the splash of feet in puddles and the occasional sucking of boots in mud.

On the ferry I met an old workmate he and his wife were heading up Goatfell from Corrie. I think we had the better choice of walk, the mist was down on the hilltops all day but we had nice views across to the mainland.
It took almost four hours just to reach Lochranza so we decided that would do for the day, in the end we had to hurry to be sure of catching the bus.

This track is a mountain bike route on my web site, I must check the description, a good (bad) part of it is a push and awkward carry for a bike although I did enjoy the cycle both times I did it.

Maybe its time to invest in either a good set of working boots or running shoes, the weather just aint good enough for long rides, its fine for short dashes

Running is great fitness exercise but its so hard work until your fitness is up then you can't stop, its like an addiction, you get all grumpy if you can't get a running fix. I've been there, its great, but not for a long time.
