Wall to Wall Sun
Forecast for 10 @ Kirroughtree looked dire so a family pow wow was convened and based on last year - ie : No showers, full manky portaloos and no amenities we decided that if it did pee down it would be hell for the family. So, we went to a campsite next to Culzean Castle and didn't take the bikes. The forcast was out by about 20 hours, so we enjoyed 2 full days of unbroken sun and 30c next to Culzean Castle. Great site and what sunsets over Arran! The Castle grounds are huge and we walked miles and enjoyed one of the best weekend family camping trips I can remember in a long time, with lots of laughs and relaxation. No regrets about missing 10 @ Kirroughtree as we don't seem to win much in our age group, and the family all thought it was an ace couple of days. I even manged a few beers!
