Last May half term myself and Carol took the children and the tents to the Isle of Arran, a small island off the west coast of Scotland. It was a place I'd wanted to visit for a long time and it was even more wonderful than I'd imagined. We were so lucky as that week the weather was amazing, always such a relief when you're camping! We stayed on the beautiful Seal Shore campsite overlooking the sea. One of my best memories was walking with Bobby to the loo's in the morning then strolling back via the beach and collecting pretty stones, to be up and out in the lovely sun doing that first thing in the morning felt very special.
Arran is a very bonny Island that is all so well looked after. There are swings next to lots of the viewing points which I think is a lovely idea and so great to let the children get the best of the view in a fun way. I didn't get a photo of this but the bus stops are all beautifully decorated, there is a lot of attention to detail all round the Island. I will definitely be going back. I'd love a photo of each swing set and all the bus stops: a mission for next time!
I took my favourite travel camera combination with me on this trip, my Fuji GF670 (squares) and Canon A1. Below are some favourites from our few days.
