All Over Arran

14th August 2015, 16 photos.

Wonderful 3 nights' camping at the "cool" Seal Shore campsite - cycled our usual 68 miles route taking in the 3 big climbs - and numerous others (it's Arran!!). Then another long day climbing Goatfell from Sannox via the scrambly Cioch na h-Oighe peak. Finally, we cycled from Lochranza, over the Mull of Kintyre, to the north tip of Gigha and returned the same route in blue skies and warm sunshine.
