Hi all, in my last post we had just left Campbeltown, on the Mull of Kintrye and continuing our journey to the tip of the peninsular. Once you get beyond Campbeltown the landscape opens up; everywhere looks clean and unpolluted and the skies are big and blue.
The photo above was taken from our car window and typical of the scenary around Campbeltown.It is easy to understand why Sir Paul McCartney fell in love with the place. If I was a celebrity and had loads of money I'd definitely choose the Mull of Kintyre before Beverly Hills. We soon covered the ten miles to the tip of the Mull and found ourselves at a small beach at a place called Dunaverty. We spent a while taking in the peaceful surroundings and took some photos, one of which can be seen below.
It is a shame that we didn't have time to linger longer, but it was a going to be a big journey back to our lodge on Loch Sween. However, before we hit the A83, which is the main road that clings to the west coast of the Mull, we popped over to have a look at a small village called Machrihanish. Here we found a row of houses clinging to a lovely piece of shoreline and we both wondered what it must be like to live so close to the Atlantic Ocean especially during a gale swept winter. We took a few photos then retraced our steps to Campbeltown where we would begin our long journey back.I will leave you with a picture of the Atlantic Ocean; similar views that accompanied us for many miles and I will share some more with you in my next post.
