WALK REVIEW: 8th April 2017
I have only fond memories of this section of the Ayrshire Coastal Path and it is a walk which I will return to one day. Navigation was simple, the views tremendous, and to top it all off I hardly met a soul! I was very fortunate to stumble upon a glorious cloud-free day, albeit a little hazy in the distance which meant that Ailsa Craig was only just visible. I was blown away by the sheer volume of pheasants in this area! Initially every time one heard me coming and flapped off I would jump but I became used to them very quickly. I didn’t manage to capture any in photos, they were just too fast for me. On the very first section of this walk a lizard scuttered across the dry gravel path in front of me. It reminded me of my adventures hiking in France 🙂
