The Mull of Kintyre

We had a great day today with Steve showing us around the south coast of the Mull of Kintyre, an area Paul McCartney used for his famous song of the same name. The map was uploaded from the official tourism site for Kintyre: http://www.kintyre.org/mullofkintyre/index.php - it shows the area below Campbeltown.

The light house at the Mull of Kintyre. The light house is as far west as one can go. official tourism site for Kintyre also has a great photograph of the Mull of Kintyre light house from the sea - something we didn't have time to do.

It is hard to describe in a few words the beauty of this part of the region with its fields of many shades of green, narrow roads, numerous stone fences or dry wall dykes, magnificent trees and of course the coastline itself.

Note the narrow road but beautiful trees, fields beyond and stone wall.

These stone gate posts are huge!
