I enjoyed a wonderful sailing back from Tiree to Oban on Monday. The views and weather were superb and entering the harbour at Oban gave excellent views of the town and McCaig’s folly on the hill as well as the cathedral and other prominent buildings.
I stayed the night at a campsite a few miles south of Oban. In the morning I headed off from Oban and scouted a few possible overnight stops on my way back towards Stirling. I ended up staying at an overnight stop near Dalmally. In one of the car parks on the way south it was disappointing to see significant amounts of litter.
It really is sad and appalling that people choose to leave litter behind in such beautiful locations. Argyll & Bute Council do not provide litter bins generally in laybys, preferring to encourage people to take their litter home. In Perth & Kinross I have seen the council provide wheelie bins and this system appears to be more successful in reducing litter.
I’m off again somewhere in Scotland this week end but have yet to decide where I am going.
