This morning was grey and wet. We didn’t fancy any of our regular walks so decided to go a little further afield. We ended up at Culzean Castle which is about half an hour down the coast from us. By the time we got there the sky was blue and the sun shining. We headed straight for the stables tea room and figured our route over cappuccino and cakes.
We started out at the Castle.
Then down into the formal gardens in front of the Castle where there was archery practice in progress.
Through the woods.
Around the Swan Pond.
A quick stop for treats and icecream.
Through some more woodland and down to a little sandy cove.
There wasn’t a soul in sight but Biggly Boy started barking frantically at something on the rocks down the other end of the beach. We couldn’t console him so Paul took him down to prove to him there was nothing there. It turned out that he’d picked up the scent of a rotting seal carcass.
Exploring the caves on the beach.
Then along the cliffs back towards the castle.
And finally down to the beach beneath Culzean Castle.
