I headed down to The Isle of Arran from Glasgow to meet up with my brother in law Andrew for what would be the last forest camp for a while. It was coming into midge season and it had already started as it turned out, albeit mildly. It was a quick 25hr micro adventure getting on the 12:30pm ferry over and the 1:50pm back the following day. I got the bus from Brodick at the Ferry terminal to go to the family home in Whiting Bay. Andrew was finishing work early and got on the bus at Lamlash. We had a brief stop at the house for Andrew to gather his gear, grab a coffee and fill up on water before heading out.
