The route passes through a mixture of scrubby countryside and small town decay but the natives were all friendly and it was well used by other cyclists.
I'm not sure who is being referred to in this next photo, but he seems to tick quite a few boxes.
Passed a heron in a field.
And then back to Balloch where there are a surprising number of boats tied up waiting for summer to come.
And of course the good old "Maid of the Loch" which has been out of commission for decades - a genuine example of a national disgrace.
The Maid of the Loch brings back so many memories for me.
