A Busy Day

Last Tuesday was such a lovely day that we felt we had to go somewhere a bit special. The forecast promised a nice sunrise along the Ayrshire coast so we decided to head to Greeto falls (Largs, North Ayrshire) before dawn and scramble around the hills. It was a beautiful morning.

After a fry up, a nap in front of the telly and a spot of work we set off to see if we could get an equally spectacular sunset in the far South of Ayrshire – at Loch Doon. We weren’t disappointed!

We started out by exploring Doon Castle.

Then I took the pups for a little run up the hill behind the castle.

By the time we got back down the sun was close to setting so we wondered about by the loch side enjoying the solitude and watching the sun set.

What better way to end such a busy day than having a lovely relaxing massage.
