8 July 1919 diary of Dr John Stewart Muir (1845-1938) of Selkirk

Had a good sound sleep. Breakfasted 8.30. Wrote P.C. [postcard] to Helen [Muir] + David [Graham] + letter to McDonald from whom + D. I had letters. Waited till the Scotsman came + started after 10. Cycled to [? Ardenveoch] + on to Mochrum by a disused but fairly rideable Road. Old Place of Mochrum is very fine. The road from there runs along [? loch]. The flies were awfully troublesome from Mochrum village. Went to Monreith + Port William where I had a most excellent tea. Fine run back along the coast with a head wind = 33.7.
