Reviresco on the Loch Fyne Riviera.

Kilfinan Bay is a really beautiful part of Loch Fyne and the sun shone down on its golden sands which stretch for 1.2km. We had it all to ourselves as we crossed to its northern boundary... Rubha Beag. We were ready for second luncheon and landed on a little cobbled beach beneath a conical mound with a flattened top.

We climbed up to get a better view and found...

...this recent monument, erected by the Clan Ewen Society, marking the site of the MacEwan Castle.

"Reviresco" is the clan motto. In Latin it means "grow young and strong again".

Reinvigorated by the rest and the motto (or was it the 18 year old Glenfiddich?) we made our way back to the kayaks to continue our voyage up Loch Fyne...
