We left Edinburgh early on the Tuesday morning and, after a 4-hour drive which included some beautiful scenery and a surprise meeting with John Swinney (Minister of Finance, Employment and Sustainable Growth) at Loch Fyne, we arrived in Campbeltown for lunch at the Royal Hotel, before making our way to Macleod’s construction site. Here, the First Minister Alex Salmond was due to meet the team and open the site. Mr Salmond was introduced to the workers on the site, and then to us. He also made a speech which included his plans to increase funding for graduates.
