Left Lochranza and cycled the short distance to the start of Glen Catacol where we padlocked the bikes and set off on foot up this beautiful Glen, coming off and taking the Gleann Diomhan path. We continued on this path to the bouldery slopes of Beinn Bhreac where we would scramble up the boulders onto the ridge and up to the summit. Glen Catacol had a beautiful stream running down it with the clearist of water i've ever seen and lovely rock pools for bathing in, again a great place for kids though Dave wasn't allowed in as again on this walk he didn't behave himself. This walk took us 3hrs 30mins.
Once on the bikes we cycled to Kildonan which is at the south of the Island again camping for the night.

Even I with my public health hat on would struggle not to imbibe from that supply.
