DAY 07, 30th July 2016 - Argyll's Secret Coast & Bute

On day 7 of Mark Beaumont's Wild About Argyll Adventure, Mark cycled to the village of Tarbert on Kintyre, where he met the Vikings and help them row their longboat over to Portavadie. He then sailed over to the island of Bute where he took to two wheels again, before appearing on stage at ButeFest. Then it was back to Tighnabruaich on Argyll's Secret Coast.

Here's Mark's blog about day7:

'Viking long boat across Loch Fyne, sailing to Bute, on stage at ButeFest, off road cycling The Kintyre Way from Skipness to Tarbert, coffee and cake at Skipness Seafood Cabin, road cycling the Caledonia Way & exploring the West Island Way on Bute.

This packed seventh day of Wild About Argyll started at the stunning Torrisdale Castle Estate and finishing in style, with my family at Portavadie. The sun shone, the wind blew and it was a perfect day's adventure on land and at sea around the Kyles of Bute.'
