We drove out of our campsite and looming 100 yards in front of us was the Isle of Arran Distillery. So, we just had to stop and go inside. We did a tour and tasting. We bought the 10-year single malt whisky which is smooth and the Arran Gold Crème, which is like a Baileys but so much nicer. What a great start to the day!
We finished the circumnavigation of the island back to Brodick where we started. We then headed back to Lochlanza to catch the 2:30pm ferry to Claonaig on the Kintyre Peninsula.
We arrived on the Kintyre Peninsula to a huge controlled fire in a field. There was smoke and flames rising as we drove passed on our way to Tarbert to the tourist office gather some information. The harbour of Tarbert is beautiful with colourful boats. We decided to head south so we set off to find a camp for the night. Tonight, we decided to ‘Wild Camp’, which means you find a spot along the side of the road and pitch. This is where we ended up. A view to die for and apparently it is frequented by seals and otters, just not the right tide! It was near Ronachan in a layby.
