Carrick Castle, Loch Goil.

Lochgoilhead.

In the morning, we all walked to Carrick castle to see the privately owned castle. Crows were taking mussels from the Loch, dropping them from on high onto the tarmac road then eating them back on the foreshore.
(Later in the week we found out ,at Inverarary Castle. that whisky had been made here from around the 1450s or prior. Remnants of a cooling coil were found along with evidence of grain.)

We had a quiet day at Rhumhor then shopped at the excellent Costcutter store at Lochgoilhead. Called in at The Goil Inn for a pint. A lovely calm, warm and dry day.

The picture below , from The Guardian, shows what can be seen now and then around The Clyde.
