An active family holiday in Scotland: Day 9
We left pretty quickly today and had breakfast on the way as we had about 10 natural miles to go – from Port Bannatyne to Largs – then we had to refuel and unload our stuff etc. Before the break fast.
We had to be careful which boat we embark on because ours was not the only one called Mistral!
We had a good time, refueled quickly as there was no line in front of us so we had some time to spare for a bit of pontoon practice within Largs Yacht Haven.
We ended the maritime part of our little adventure as we had started, with a meal at Scotts. As always, the food was excellent.
In the afternoon, we just cool off and relax. The skies opened for a brief period – the weather had been good with us all week and again we were extremely lucky to avoid the rare occasions when it rained.
In the evening we drove into downtown Largs to grab a fish and chips from The Fish Works. He is widely regarded as one of Scotland’s best chippies (winner of the Best Fish and Chip Shop in Scotland at the Dine In Awards 2017). The place enjoys a magnificent view of the Firth of Clyde and, while it was quite pleasant, it wasn’t anything particularly special, I didn’t think it was.
Feeling full, we found a quiet sleeping area overlooking the sea (using the park4night app) to spend the night in the motorhome. Tomorrow, we would pick up George from the dog-sitters before enjoying one last “surprise” adventure on our trip.
