Mull of Kintyre via Lighthouse by

What a fantastic cycle. The road from Southend to the top of the car park at the top of the hill above the Mull of Kintyre Lighthouse was very interesting and very steep in places. It appears to be rated much lower than it actually is. A very enjoyable but challenging cycle. From the MOK car park the road drops quickly, many hairpins till you reach the lighthouse which is very isolated. The sun was shining when I arrived and the views were stunning. The return journey to the car park was very steep but with nothing on the road I found it tough but short. From the top carpark back to Southend was fantastic, mainly downhill with wind behind. The views were stunning. A great cycle.
