been there did that - with pictures

well we are back and yes we enjoyed it

this picture just about sums it up - just look at that view - and it was like this all over
 this is how we got over to hunters quay - it is one of the ferries run by western ferries
only a 20 minute crossing and the kids loved it
much better than to extra 100 miles in the car to get round the other way
 this is what we stayed in - it is a 3 bedroom lodge at hunters quay holiday village - a very nice, well run site in a lovely location

would we go there again - yes i think we would

our son is called john and we spotted this street sign in dunoon

well you have to dont you ..........

Happy holidays 2011 – hunters quay nr dunoon scotland

We left home about 0930 stopping for fuel at penrith on the way

Before we knew it we were on the 1230 ferry from gourock arriving 20 minutes later at dunoon

After driving off the ferry we were at our cabin within 5 minutes

Not bad we thought for 160 miles door to door with no hold ups

Empty car out and unpack cases , tidy up and back down into dunoon for a bite to eat and then into the local supermarket for supplies

Back to the cabin and settle in for a bit – investigate the site and its facilities – not bad 2 swimming pools and an indoor play area for the kids – a bar and a restraurant and entertainment most nights

Back to the cabin again for tea and then settle down for the night – one or two drinks and then bed

– its been a busy day -
