Scotland 2016 - Mull of Kintyre to Oban

Written by Manuel Faessler
From the Mull of Kintyre to Oban
 
After the ferry docked in Kennacraig we drove south until we reached Campbeltown and refilled our stocks. After that we tried to reach the Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse which was only possible due to our instincts as there were no signs and not even an adress to type into our sat-nav. After about an hour on rough single track roads (which are not suitable for cars longer than 6m – as the siding places are really short) which were not only narrow but steep as well (up and down) we reached a little parking place above the lighthouse.
 
A little scouting on the next hilltop reveiled not only the lighthouse right below us, but a fantastic view of the Irish coastline as well, which seemed like the perfect setting for the sunset this evening. When it was time, we took the little hike down to the lighthouse (about 400m in height) which made us look forward to the climb back up – not. When we reached the lighthouse we already had the feeling that we wouldn’t got to see a sunset that day as a band of heavy fog was setting right above the horizon which blocked the sun. We set up our cameras anyway and hoped for the best, but without success. As we decided to abandon the sunset plans we photographed around the lighthouse a little bit and I’ve managed it to get one of my favourit pictures of the trip right from the lawn of the lighthouse facing north.
 
The way back wasn’t very funny as it got not only exhausting but very windy and cool as well ... the wind stayed with us for the night and as the parking place was more or less exposed, the night was not really comfortable (as the Transit has really big sides which work like a sail ...).
The next day we left the Mull of Kintyre behind our backs as we drove north to Oban and looked for a nice B&B (Ines said I’d need a shower ... don’t know why ...) and visited Oban Distillery (which we haven’t visited yet, despite being in Oban for a couple of times). After a nice steak for dinner and a couple of beers we were looking forward to a „real“ bed in theStrathnaver Guesthouse (Link) which we have already known from previous visits.

Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you're working
with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Word press/B2evoluti on and Drupal.
The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
then most blogs and I'm looking for something
completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

I do not even know how I ended up here, but I assumed this post was once great.
I do not know who you're however definitely you are going
to a famous blogger if you happen to aren't already. Cheers!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
really something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.

Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?

I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
Thanks

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You appear to know a lot about this,
such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you
just can do with some p.c. to pressure the message house a bit, however instead of
that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.
I'll definitely be back.

Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if
you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you stop
it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it's driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabb ing article like yours.
It's beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all web owners
and bloggers made just right content as you did, the
net can be much more useful than ever before.
