Other than that, there’s loads to do on the island. Climbing, scrambling, walking, watery/sea things, waterfalls, cafes, distilleries, cheese factories…and there’s a bar on site, and a golf course too (but we’d have to be really desperate for that, right?). I’ve even got a good narnia-meets-Lord-Of-The-Rings-esque woodland adventure up my sleeve should the weather be total rubbish….
Remember, it’s a bank holiday in England, but not in Scotland and the Scottish schools will already be back too, so hopefully not too busy!
I’m booked onto the 14:50 sailing on Friday 23rd Aug, and plan to stay on the island until Monday evening or Tuesday morning (at which point I plan to get the boat from Lochranza to Kintyre and head into the Highlands for a few days…)
Note that if you try to book on the website it looks like very few sailings on Friday 23rd are available. I just phoned and booked on the 15.20 (for £48 return) and apparently they are almost all available ! 0800 066 5000.
