Seemed like a simple enough suggestion, so off we went, free-wheeling to the Creggans.
The recent showery spell has kept us mostly indoors for a couple of days and we were in need of some fresh air and exercise. A little run down our quiet lane, then along the shores of Loch Fyne, followed by a nice pint of this week’s selected Fyne Ale (Highlander, in case you were wondering!). Fab – what could be better?
We are lucky enough to have found two great locals here. The Creggans Inn is a lovely country hotel with restaurant and bar, in a lochside setting that gives jaw-dropping views across the water to the mountains beyond. The Clachan Bar is a ‘proper’ pub, right in the heart of Strachur village – a great place to meet people and find out what’s going on in the neighbourhood.
We knew we would miss our London local, the Pig and Whistle, so we are delighted to have found two perfect replacements. We’ve been welcomed into the community and we are sure that our guests will receive the same warm welcome when they stop by for a pint!
Just one issue: the free-wheeling on the way there was not quite as free-wheeling on the way back. I’ll definitely be feeling it tomorrow morning – I might need a bit more practice. I guess that means we’ll be hopping on our bikes and off to the pub again very soon!
