Arran Part Seven Were we finally going to see a day we could get to the beach? Well yes we were, as a matter of fact. The lady who owned the lodges had given us some pointers as to which places were good to go to and amongst these was her favourite beach, located behind the Creamery at Kilmory. After a wrong turning and some directions from a friendly local, we trundled our way down the long, narrow, stony road and found the beach in question.
Arran Part Six Today we went searching in vain for a mythical viking fort. I’d spotted an arrowed sign some days previously at the side of the String Road saying “Ballygowh Fort”. It was one of the official Arran Access signs. We searched it out again and followed it. After negotiating a twisting rocky track we found ourselves at a farm, where a man up a ladder told me that the fort was actually covered over but we could still go up if we wanted.
Arran Part Five We’re fairly getting into the swing of things here, developing a morning routine in our small wooden habitation: the bairns wake me by coming through to my annex and joining me in completing a level of DEVICE 6; we then get up and have breakfast; I pack the bags and we set off on our latest planned adventure. This day it was to be stone circles and Brodick Castle.
