For a lot of people, I think that visiting Kintyre may also be a bit like going north of the Wall in George RR Martin’s, “Game of Thrones”. Certainly, their comments on arrival nearly always seem to contain something akin to, “It took us a lot longer to get here than we thought it would”. Having wall to wall rain for the entire journey from Glasgow certainly doesn’t seem to help. So it’s good to see the hardy souls who make it past Inverary, starting to appear in the village. It’s just a shame that they haven’t seen it at his best yet. Fingers crossed!
