After driving down late on last night we were lucky enough to find a big hole in the ground of a car park next to the terminal at Ardrossan where the chap allowed us to stay over (at under the expected rate 🙂 – not that it was at all expensive). Not a lot of sleep though. It isn’t quiet when it sounds like all the ferry’s engines are running all night!

The picture shows the view that greeted us when we got into the ferry queue, after picking up a big fat book of tickets for the next fortnight. Just looked like we were going to get swallowed up!

Considering it was the first time I’d driven onto a ferry, and then add to that it was the ‘home I was now driving on, it was ginger progress. Even though the CalMac guys were waving to keep moving.

Now just time to sit back up here and enjoy the view as the 5 of us make the journey across to Arran. It’s a beautiful morning for it though. Pics of the view to follow.
