Campbeltown Young Farmers put people’s local knowledge and driving skills to the test in their latest car treasure hunt.

Thirty cars took part in the hunt which set off from the bus turning area at the entrance to Kintyre Park between 7pm and 7.30pm on Friday July 22.

The first round took teams around Campbeltown, while the second took them out towards Machrihanish and back into town via the Moss road.

Various treasures had to be found along the way and brought to the finish.

At Argyll Bowling Club afterwards, prizes were presented to those who finished in first, second and third place, as follows: 1 The Watsons: John, Laura, Lizzie and Annie Watson; 2 Better Late Than Never: Louise Dott, Rhona Earnshaw, Kathryn Semple and Jenny Semple; 3 The Raptors: IIvars and Lāsma Kirmuška and family.

With £10 entry fee per car, the event raised £300 for the club.

‘It was a great night with many teams coming along, testing their local knowledge,’ said a Campbeltown Young Farmers spokesperson.

‘We would like to thank John and Carole Armour and Janette Hannah for preparing the hunt for us and everyone who took part on the night.’
