Other couple of points to note about the "through Kilbirnie" route - check traffic Scotland - the Lochwinnoch - Kilbirnie road was closed for ? long a couple of weeks ago (didn't get a chance to read the entire tomb of an essay they put on the sign
Also there is a Tesco in Kilbirnie that don't mind you filling boat tanks at supermarket prices and is a nice easy tow through the pumps.
And an independant garage on the "back road" to Dalry that does "properly filled" filled rolls as well as not being annoyed with boats fillig up!
So annoyed about missing the chimney......
