Cowal Vintage Transport Club held its charity road run on Saturday September 1, with guests from as far afield as Kintyre, Dunblane and the Borders joining in.

A colourful procession of vintage tractors, cars and motorcycles and an old MacBrayne’s bus left Sandbank on the Holy Loch, winding its way across the Cowal peninsula to Otter Ferry, before hugging the Loch Fyne shore northwards to Strathlachlan. At Strathlachlan Community Centre the vintage enthusiasts enjoyed a hearty lunch, with the opportunity to view the gleaming machinery.

The sun poked through the clouds and an enjoyable day was made all the better in the knowledge that money raised on the day would be donated to Cowal Hospice in Dunoon.
