Weekend at Ardgarten

Ardgarten-37

Louise and I spent this weekend at Ardgarten Caravan and Camping Site (run by the Forestry Commission). Unfortunately the Saturday was pretty rainy and we spent the day relaxing inside the van. But on Sunday the weather was much better and we were able to explore some of the local area.

The campsite was very nice with mountains surrounding and it was on the banks of Loch Long which was picturesque. We arrived at night and it was extremely dark. In fact the only thing we could see when we arrived was the lights coming from the windows of a train travelling past on the mountain opposite!!

On Sunday we travelled to the "Rest and be thankful" car park where we had a Leek and Potato soup whilst admiring the views over Glen Croe. After this we took the easiest walk at the Ardgarten visitor centre - the Riverside Walk along the banks of the River Croe.

Hopefully we will return soon and try some longer walks!
