We arrived at the Caledonian MacBrayne ferry terminal in Oban, hoping to go on a day trip to Iona. It was not to be! A strip across the poster indicated that the tour was cancelled that day.
We enquired about the reason for the cancellation and were told that it was unlikely that we could return from Iona due to the weather. Instead we were offered a trip to Duart Castle. We went on the ferry and then on a short coach trip to Duart Castle, which we had seen from the ferry. It was an overcast day with some drizzle. The bad weather, which had had to the cancellation of the other trip arrived later in the day, as expected.
I didn’t take any photos in the museum rooms inside the castle. Having been a Girl Guide, I was interested to note that one of the former residents of the castle had been the second Chief Scout, following on from Lord Baden-Powell.
Here is a selection of my photos from the day.
