Tonic on our doorstep
Matthew Bethell, the swimmer who features on this week’s front page, said it was ‘love at first sight’ when he arrived in Kintyre. He even likened the area to a Greek island.
The primary school teacher, like all in the profession, has had a tumultuous and challenging year, but he described Kintyre’s waters as just the tonic he needed.
Many of us who live here take for granted Kintyre’s stunning scenery which leaves such an impression on visitors.
How lucky we are to have been able to spend lockdown in such a peaceful setting.
