    Stayed at a lovely wee site (only 8 pitches) called Garlieston Lodge.

    Lovely pub in the village which allows dogs, post office and a couple of shops too.

  2. 450 miles with the only problem being a loose connection on the oil pressure switch wire and the feed to the stereo vibrating loose.

    Really needs more space in the van, especially when theres these buggers taking up all the space.:rolleyes:

    Nice one, you should complete the journey by going to Aromanche to see the resting place of the Mulberry harbours.
     
  4. Little bit further away though.

    There was one section of mulberry harbour that had survived in Garlieston bay until 2006 when it was destroyed in a storm. :(
     
  5. I'll need to do more trips over that way, we always head to the highlands or north west coast & Isles .
    I'll dig my doodle map out and check it out.
    Cheers

  8. Lived not far from Garlieston, tiny village called Kirkcowan, many years ago. Lovely area, always mean to go back
     
  9. that looks like its really nice & tranquil :thumbsup:
     
  10. Yes you definately should - we've taken the van through there twice. My grandfather came ashore at Gold beach on D-Day - only a few hundred yards to the East of Arromanche so it is a quite special place for me.
