Panoramic picture of a view over a sea loch from a hill, an inviting bench in the foregroundAn inviting bench (I’ve sat on it as well) to enjoy the view over Loch Fyne near Inveraray. The bench is┬ánext to the watchtower/folly above Inveraray Castle, near the summit of Dun na Cuaiche (248m). A great stop on the journey to Islay, from memory the walk up the hill doesn’t take very long and the views on a sunny day are very rewarding.
