We're hoping to get across but that largely depends upon whether my wife gets back from Oban at a sensible hour and whether a babysitter can be arranged.

|As might have been mentioned already our Landrover runs on LPG. To all intents and purposes that's the same flavour of Propane as used in your trusty camping stove and which many of us around here have in copious quantities in a tank at the bottom of the garden, being off the gas mains as we are.|
|Kintyre is surprisingly well-served with LPG which is available from the forecourts of County Garage in Campbeltown, Kintyre Filling Station in Tarbert, and at Riverside Filling Station in Lochgilphead. Visitors take note.|
Up until recently finding someone around here to install or service an LPG system for a car was a bit of a nightmare, the nearest suitable garage being in Glasgow, but just recently a new business has started up.
Iain Craig of Borders Conservation operates from Glen Lussa, near Peninver, and offers conversion and servicing for LPG-powered cars. He recently had our Landrover in for servicing and did a smashing job - it drives like a new car again.
