Thank you to the Artmap Argyll artists on the Canal Trail who came out to meet Mark Beaumont on his #WildAboutArgyll adventure on Wednesday, and to sculptor Melanie Chmielewska who also ran with him a...

Mark Beaumont added 7 new photos.

With the packed schedule of adventure sports, I am writing this on the CalMac ferry from Islay to Kennacraig at the start of day 6, but catching up on what happened a few days ago, day 4 of Wild About Argyll. Explore Argyll

The film crew and I had a 4am alarm, but the night porter hadn't read his handover notes about the early breakfast so we piled into the kitchen to make our own! Leaving from Gannavan, just north of Oban, we set out to paddle the first leg of the Argyll Sea Kayak Trail, Sea Kayak Argyll which can take you all the way to Helensburgh. Organised by Dave Bleazard from Outside Edge guided by his friends Barry and Wendy, we were against the tide all the way, but it was a stunning 30km paddle heading south along the coast, through the Sound of Seil, underneath the Bridge over the Atlantic, where locals came out and rowed their coastal skiff with us. After five and a half hours paddling, we came ashore at Arduaine and the Loch Melfort Hotel and Restaurant where Callum and Rachel Ross welcomed us with a spread of fresh seafood and local venison.

Soon after we boarded a fast boat and raced out to the Corryvreckan, the incredible whirlpools between islands on the edge of the Atlantic and to see a sea-fall, where the tide causes the water to rush and drop.

Back ashore at Crinan, local runners joined me for a gentle 9 mile run along the canal, stopping to chat with the artists, all part of Artmap Argyll

A quick change and I headed inland to mountain bike the singletrack at Fire Tower Trail at Cairnbann. The drone cameraman had a lot of fun filming these stunning sweeping routes.

And from there it was another costume change for a quick run up Dunadd Fort, where the ancient kings of Scotland were crowned, summiting in the evening light with views over Moine Mhor National Nature Reserve.

Finally, without even time for a shower, I raced to Kilmartin Museum, which showcases all the pre-historic monuments and artefacts in the glen for a talk and book signing.

All in a days adventure! Great fun
