National Park Walk

Eeek, we had to do a ranger walk for the National Park today at Ardgartan Campsite/Argyll Cabins, Arrochar. Lots of hard work learning a new area in a short space of time, but great fun and we met some lovely people. Our friend Lesley actually grew up there so her help was invaluable. Forest Holidays were showing various heads of the National Parks in Britain what we do as a company as a lot of our sites are in the National Parks. We had two nice ladies from The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park come on our walk, but most went on a hike up The Cobbler. The weather was drizzly but we still had fun, which included a game of 'Forest family Fortunes' under a bothy bag at lunch time.

This marks the climax of a very busy successful ranger season as we now have a few days off, yeh, to rest and re-energise. Just in time for the Celtic festival of Mabon, the Autumn Equinox - a time for celebrating the friuts of your labours literally and emotionally! We won 'Heroes of the month' for August too for all our hard work and good customer feedback for our walks and mountiain bike activities, so that was really lovely. The wine, chocolate and flowers were gorgeous.

We are really sad not to be able to work at Cobleland campsite anymore next season though, but pastures new are hopefully growing and we will visit our special friends and regular campers there a lot!
