A Castle Walk

A Castle Walk

Hope you’ve all had a Happy Hump Day today- here’s some Wednesday Wit in case you haven’t… it sums up how I feel after a weekend of excess! 😀

Today’s stats:

Run: Nope, not today. It was a strength day, so I did NTC’s 45 minute Intermediate Get Strong. It was tough! I’ll do a 15 minute stretch later, too.

Time: 45 mins

Best track while doing high-knees:  Soak Up The Sun, Sheryl Crow. Very appropriate today!

As the warm, sunny weather is continuing, I headed out for a walk after dinner. Tonight, I took a stroll around Tarbert Castle, which overlooks the village. Would you like to see it?

It has recently undergone quite a bit of restoration work: it dates back to Robert the Bruce’s time.

Here’s a picture of the harbour through one of the windows:

Here’s the views across the village and out towards Loch Fyne from the Castle:

Beautiful, huh?

Today’s life lesson: Move the coffee table before you do planks and press ups; you’re less likely to bang your head 😉

What’s the best viewpoint in your town or village?

  1. Tarbert looks beautiful, and it is great the castle is being restored!
    I love to run up Mt Eden, which is a central city volcano that has 360 degree views – a great reward for the climb (and a breather!)
