Welcome Henry
Being nosy here: "just booked our flights" does that mean you're visiting from outside the UK, and if so what made you choose the Kintyre Way?  Or are you flying to Glasgow or even Campbeltown??

Hi Jennie,

sorry for the delayed answer. At the moment I am down with influenza.

Yes, we are not from from the UK. We are from Berlin, Germany. There is a direct flight from here to Glasgow. We will stay there for one day to complete our equipment since a lot of things we need like gas cartridges are not allowed on planes. Hopefully we will find the bus station to get to Kintyre Wink
Originally, we wanted to walk the WHW but we had to reschedule this. So the the Kintyre Way seemed to be a more than appropriate alternative.

Regards from Berlin

Great to be chatting to hikers from Berlin, Henry Cheesy   You can fly GLA/Campbeltown with BA from GBP28 each way in May and that would save ages compared trekking into Glasgow to catch a bus.  Then you could buy your camping gaz in Campbeltown!  It's the same airport unless you're with Ryanair who fly to "Glasgow Prestwick" which is actually 30 miles away Shocked  Might be worth looking at connection times with your flight as I think there's only two flights a day (leaving GLA 0900 and 1630).  Actually Glasgow is a great city to visit, and you could break your journey if you want to see it properly.

Hope to hear how you get on, regards, Jennie
