Ardrossan

Ardrossan, on the west coast of Scotland is a place where you can catch a ferry to Arran. We have travelled that route in the past but on a recent visit we just found a place just north of Ardrossan which was handy for a picnic, with parking, tables and a view.

Of course we saw the ferries making the journey.

Clearly a Calmac ferry and the island of Arran is not that far away.

The ferry approaches Arran.

There is always bird life to see. The two common wading birds are the oystercatcher…

…and the curlew.

I’m not sure what he has in his beak.

There are wild flowers on the beach as well.

And that photo shows us that it really was a dull day as far as weather was concerned. Hardly summer at all! But actually it was late July.
