Watch out for an event with accompanying caches, based in the village of Carradale in Kintyre.
It is on Saturday 7th April, which is the Easter weekend.

There will be over 25 caches placed especially for this event, which is based around the Kintyre Way. This is a walk that starts in Tarbert in the north, to Southend in the....south. The way is 87 miles long, but of course, you don't have to walk it all to get the specially placed caches. There will be two (much) shorter circular walks based on Carradale and caches close to the Event base, at the Network Tearoom.

In the evening there will be a licensed Ceilidh and barbeque. (small charge)

Local Rangers and GPS tuition on site if needed too.

This is a local community event which could do with some support in a remote, but stunning location.

That certainly is remote. Don't suppose if you know any details of local camp sites do you?

HH, I know of one campsite round that way, stunning views, it's out on the west side of the peninsula at Kilberry. It's called Port Ban. Admittedly it's approx 13 miles down a little country road from Tarbert, so probably a little far out for your needs, but I do recommend it. We've had some great stays there with the kids. Will be nice to see more caches round that way too.

Thanks JG, I've now made plans for the 9th April, so I won't be able to go there.
