We had a lovely sunny day for a drive around to Strone and beyond. All my photos were taken on the pier, sadly derelict now for many years, although it was once a regular stop for Clyde steamers. Strone is very close to Kilmun (see my previous blog) and is where the north shore of the Holy Loch becomes the west shore of the Firth of Clyde.

Above, an old photo of Strone on a postcard, from around the early 1900s

Is that the same set of houses from 1900 still standing over there?

You are in God's country there.
Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world is in and around the Firth of Clyde.

Thank you both; yes Kirigalpoththa, they are the same houses I believe.

Donald, I couldn't agree more, the scenery is second to none and absolutely breathtaking. I can't wait to get back to the Firth with the camera, though it's impossible for me to really do it justice.
