A surefire diary date has to be 20th August at Portavadie.
The superb resort in south west Cowal is hosting the 2016 Drop and Roll Tour from Danny MacAskill.
And yes – that is the Danny MacAskill, the nervelessly athletic stunt cyclist who wheels uo mountains and had everyone holding their breath when he took on the simply impossible and well named Inaccessible Pinnacle – the climbers’ In Pin – in the Cuillins.
He did it, of course – though most of us could do no to more than squint through our fingers.
This is going to be one spectacular show in an equally eye-popping setting, with this legendary rider in action here on the shores of Loch Fyne.
Show times on 20th August are at 1pm and 4pm.
The show is free – but who with any sense would go there to see it and not make the most of the fabulous facilities at Portavadie? There’s the spa with its swathe of treatments and its infinity pool, the restaurants, the bar, the views… and overnight family accommodation in the Lodge as well as high end flats with their own saunas and cottages that accept dogs.
