We went from Oban south to Aran, via much the same route as you've planned. Generally lovely, though apparently the south shore of Loch Awe is much nicer than the north. It can be very rolling though, don't presume the lack of overall elevation translates to easy riding. The canal to/from Lochgilphead is very pretty. Are you camping, hotelling, warmshowersing?
Hard to tell just looking at numbers via Google maps, but consider myself warned about the route not being exactly easy. Weather dependant I think we should be okay as less elevation than our tour last year and planning smaller rides over a longer time period - famous last words eh. Remember Lochgilphead being very pretty from visiting a few years back, that's actually where the (Mr Bean style) seafood phobia originated.
Part of the deal with touring with the girlfriend is staying at B&B's, which is fine with me. If we get stuck out in the sticks tenting has been mentioned although will depend on what we find for mid July.
Yeah, should be fine then :) Not having to worry about finding a good wild camping spot and sorting everything out goes a long way in mileage!
