Driving to Campbeltown

Another pretty view on the drive


Solitary campers at The Machrihanish Holiday Park

View over the sea at sunset

It was still raining this morning when we set off to drive up the “bonny banks of Loch Lomond” so we didn’t see very much but as we headed down the Long Loch and past the REST & BE THANKFUL (words inscribed on a stone placed by soldiers who built the original military road in 1753) the rain stopped and the sun tried to come out. It was a very picturesque drive down the Kintyre peninsula and we arrived at The Machrihanish Holiday Park (PA28 6PT) near Campbeltown about three hours after we left Balloch.

There was no-one around at the campsite, just a notice at the reception to find a pitch and pay later so that is what we did. Although the rain stopped it was blowing hard and very chilly, but we were soon hooked up with the heater and the kettle on. Later in the evening we were treated to a lovely sky at sunset but it was still very cold – and there has still been no sign of the camp warden.
