Satnav would provide little help to those trying to navigate their way through Campbeltown Young Farmers’ latest car treasure hunt.

Around 30 teams took part in the hunt which was based on car parks in and around Campbeltown, including Campbeltown Airport, Tesco and Springbank.

Teams had to work out the names of the car parks and then had to answer four questions at each car park.

Treasure also had to be found which was an ice cream sundae with a cherry on top and a blow-up crocodile or similar beach toy.

There were prizes, distributed at a prize-giving ceremony in the Argyll Hotel afterwards, for first, second and third place, determined by who had the most points.

Results: 1 Carolyn, Darren, Iona and Ailie Renton and Amy Ross; 2 Jennifer Cameron, Kate McKerral and Isobel McConnachie; 3 Kirsteen, Hannah and Ava Ross.

The event raised £207.36 for the club. There was also a raffle in aid of Marie Curie which made £89, but the decision was made that the club would donate £100 to Marie Curie in total.

The club would like to thank John and Moira Menzies who made up the treasure hunt, adding that members are very grateful for the time and effort they put in.
