Thanks so much for this route. Got up early on a cool, clear spring morning and am I glad I did! Gorgeous and amazingly varied scenery from the off - Ben Cruachan presiding over your journey. The climb out of Oban at Glencruitten sets you up for a real polka dot jumper challenge up to Musdale, after which it levels off into some stunning moorland (some rough track for a mile or so, but fine thereafter). Then the landscape changes again with lovely forest around Loch Nant, but watch out for startled deer.
Correction- there is no shop at Kilchrennan, but there is a hotel. After that it's downhill by the River Nant most of the
way to Taynuilt. A comparatively gentle climb and easy run through beautiful Glen Lonan completes the loop. Highly recommended.
