Yesterday a few friends and I ventured down to Campbeltown on the Kintyre peninsula to see a friend who hasn’t been in the best of health recently.
Although the weather was a bit overcast, the rain stayed off.
The last time I was in Campbeltown was in 1984 when we had a caravan holiday in nearby Carradale in 1984. When we went there we travelled on the road on the other side of the peninsula via places like Saddell, Grogport and Skipness.
I had a holiday in Macrahanish as a kid and to be honest I can’t remember our route then so I’m not sure if I have ever been on the road we followed on the second part of our journey yesterday which included a stop at the Kennacraig Ferry Terminal and clear views of Gigha (the most southerly of the Hebrides) as well as seeing Jura and Islay in the distance.
First stop en route was a road I have travelled many times and village I know very well – Inveraray.
Next stop was the ferry terminal at Kennacraig.
It was a grand day out. Good to see our friend Almax and his wife Ann and thanks to them for the banquet (and drams) which welcomed us. A fantastic day of great scenery, conversation, food and drink.
On the way back I fixed my eye on Gigha for a possible future canoe trip.
Watch this space.
