Mull of Kintyre and Arran

After a night in Oban we head south down the coast and down the east side of the Mull of Kintyre.

No mist rolls in from the sea.

The small ferry takes us over to Lochranza and we find the small pub/guesthouse that will be our home for the night. Homely, friendly and stunning views.

Having dumped our bags, we explore the island of Arran for the rest of the day.

As the guidebooks suggest, Arran is an island of two halves, where the highlands meet the lowlands. The rugged, mountainous landscapes of the north give way to Devon style hedgerow lined lanes and seaside villages to the south.

Awww, you make me feel so homesick!! I worked for a summer while at uni on the west coast of Mull and got to know the island really well.

Glad you had a good time.
