Welcome to the Grahams on Tour

 

November 3, 2019

443 miles, averaging 21.2 mpg (the singletrack roads don't seem to be good for getting decent fuel consumption in our motorhome!).

I had a weeks holiday at the end of October so we decided to take the motorhome over to Mull, somewhere we'd visited a couple of times befo...

As it was Fiona's birthday on Friday we decided we'd head away for the weekend in the motorhome. The weather forecast wasn't great though, so we didn't want to go too far so our thoughts turned to the Scottish Borders. We'd heard good things about the Caravan and Campi...

We were on an early ferry from Port Ellen back to the mainland but as we overnighted just a few hundred yards away we were saved from an early start.

It was a lovely morning so once we'd parked up in the boarding area for the ferry we had a wander round the harbour taki...

After a pretty lazy week really we decided to do a bit more sightseeing on our last full day on the Island. First we headed to the lovely little village of Portnahaven, which is at the south end of the peninsula that Port Charlotte sits further up. It's a very pretty l...

After several days of not moving the motorhome - either just staying local or using the bus to get around - we finally decided to do some more exploring. Several people had mentioned to us that we really had to visit the beach at Machir Bay so despite the weather being...

We found out there was a bus from Port Charlotte to the main town on Islay, Bowmore, and that you could take dogs on it. We'd been meaning to try Ludo on a bus for a while now so decided to kill two birds with one stone, as we wanted to do some shopping there as well a...

We awoke to a pretty wet morning so decided to have a lazy day (they used to be "duvet days" before we got Ludo, however he's a lively boy so even these days involve a couple of hours of walkies now).

There is a small beach right beside the Port Mhor campsite so when th...

The weather was a bit up and down today but we managed to squeeze a couple of nice walks in between the showers. 

We're staying at the Port Mhor campsite, which is part of a community project at the Port Mhor centre, just outside Port Charlotte. I think it's the only pl...

We awoke to a lovely morning, with a stunning view over the Crinan Canal from our bed. Our ferry wasn't until 1pm and as we were only about 20 miles away from the terminal we had loads of time to kill. First I headed out to take some sunrise pictures:

We then headed out...

 125 miles, 25.4mpg

We're booked onto the CalMac ferry to Islay tomorrow so decided to take out time wandering up from Edinburgh and wild camping the night before the ferry.

When we were in Lochgilphead a few weeks back we had a nice walk along the Crinan Canal and say a...
