Travel Through Our Memories 8 - Campbeltown by George

A group of young Travellers from Highland recently took part in a project in which they recalled the places of importance to them and their unique experiences on the road. Here, George writes about Campbeltown:

My Special Place.

A long time ago I was working with my father in Campbeltown and out of curiosity I asked why the ferry to Ireland was never in service. He told me that it had only been used for one season. My father also told me you would row to Ireland on a day with calm waters. After we were finished working he took me to the shore to a point where only water separated the countries.

The view was breathtaking and if you looked closely you could see the land in the distance.
