Carradale and the Mull of Kintyre


Off on a road trip with S, to track down the home of Naomi Mitchison. And we were denied access to Carradale House, so had to make do with a caravan park owner bored of folk asking, two grumpy dogs and a decent cat. Emergency bird book bought in Campbelltown added facts to speculation, Saddell Abbey carvings were wowed at, Carradale beach filmed as Mars, a puncture at the Tayinloan to Gigha ferry, scones… you get the drill. There’s a Linda Maccartney Memorial Garden which features a statue to rival Ronaldo’s.
