Soaked through but happy to be in the Kintyre peninsula and away from busy road walking.
The first couple of hours in a downpour are a honeymoon period for waterproof clothing when they actually work. After a few hours I find you end up soaked no matter what you wear. On days like this remaining warm and dry over hours of heavy rainfall is impossible so I aim to remain warmish and damp through movement and layering.

The rain has stopped and this looks a perfect pace to make my home tonight.
