Port Ramsay, Isle of Lismore, Scotland

In May 2016, we took our little car that we tow on the back of our motorhome, across to the Isle of Lismore on the west coast of Scotland, situtated close to Oban. As we only had three hours to spend exploring, we drove from one end to the other, stopping at various points along the way. I have already posted about ancient tomb slabs, the parish church and Achadun Castle, so now its the turn of a village…Port Ramsay is a small village to the north of the Island. It was built to house the workers of the limestone industry in the area. The lime was processed in lime kilns and then used for agriculture and in mortar for buildings.

  1. We will be in Connel the first week of Aug…can’t express the level of excitement! Was wondering how the cellular service is in that area outside of Oban?

    1. Well Oban is fine, but its very patchy outside and on the islands, but anyway I am sure you will have a wonderful time and enjoy every minute of your trip ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you Jo. When we arrived it was was grey overcast and cold, with a slight drizzle and windy…….at the end of the three hours, it had turned warm and sunny, just in time for us to leave ๐Ÿ™‚
