Ayrshire Coastal Path – Portencross

June 30, 2012 in Canicross Ramblings by

Paul and I are both cutting back on running this past week due to little niggles. This has given the opportunity to walk some of our routes and take photos. On a particularly nice evening last week we took a walk along part of the Ayrshire Coastal Path between Ardrossan and Largs – the highlight of which for me is Portencross. We timed things to be passing through one way in the ‘golden hour’ and coming back at sunset.

And the sun sets over Little Cumbrae/Rothsay?
