Falkland..

Postby stratos_blue » Sat Sep 11, 2004 1:23 pm

Falkland !!...Its a village in Fife....took a run out there on Thursday , great day , loads of sunshine so top was down there and back again . If any of you are looking for a great way to spend an afternoon you could do a whole lot worse . Its a conservation village with a few cosy places to eat and drink , a Palace with great gardens and an orchard to walk round if thats your thing , Ive added a link for Falkland on the wonderful Undiscoveredscotland website , in my opinion the best website there is for finding places to visit in this country. Have a peek and see what you think . http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/f ... index.html

Oh I envy you Stratos, those lovely windy roads on the South of the island just waiting to be gobbled up. Had a week camping down in Kildonan in July but it's not the same driving a VW Sharan VR6 full of kids.

Can't recommend a B&B in Brodick but there are plenty to chose from, if I were you I would stay in Lamlash or Whiting Bay, there is a 'Taste Of Arran' accommodation where they serve only local produce and it comes highly recommended.

Enjoy...

Try Glenartney Hotel. My brother stays in Brodick and we stayed there a couple of weeks ago when over for a weeding on his recommendation. Very good family run small hotel and fairly reasonable. Sorry I don't have the phone no. but you should be able to get it on the internet.

Thanks Chris ...I think I'll take your advice re Lamlash / Whiting Bay...it'll be busy this weekend due to the Bank Holiday but I'll be there till Wed so hopefully after Monday those roads you mentioned will be a wee bit less busy.... :)

"Weeding"?

Sounds like a wee explanation would be interesting...? :shock: :lol:

Perhaps a quaint island pastime.... ? :?
