A short ferry trip to Arran, about an hour
and we arrived at Seal Shore Campsite which is at Kildonan on the south of the island
As we were late getting organised and booking a pitch, we couldn't get hook up but could bet a pitch right on the shore line providing we weren't using an awning or canopy (the owner didn't want to block the views of campers behind)
There was a little beach directly in front of the site that was a mixture of sand and stone
Seacat ferries passed fairly frequently and a submarine made an appearance too!
Great views at breakfast time
The site had a wee shop and the owner went fishing as often as he could, cooked crab and lobster were available to buy from the shop when available.
According to the tourist booklet we picked up on the ferry, it should take approximately 2 and a half hours to drive round the whole island. Due to the quality of the roads (lots of pot holes), in a lowered bay that time was doubled, we actually thought about marking on the island map where we managed to get into fourth gear and travel above 20mph!
If you make it to Arran, this campsite is worth a visit as it is so close to the water, which is a priority for our dogs!
