Dunure Castle

This afternoon, I met guests arriving off ferry from Northern Ireland at Cairnryan. We departed the ferry terminal about 2.30pm and then travelled north along the Clyde Coast with first stop at Dunure. Here we visited then ruined medieval castle then the small fishing harbour where we availed of light refreshment.

Next, we continued up the coast encountering deteriorating weather as we progressed through towns such as Ballantrae, Girvan, Ayr, Largs and Inverkip. Unfortunately, the poor weather prevented planned sightseeing at Gourock so we moved on through Greenock and Port Glasgow then across the Erskine Bridge and on to a destination of Balloch on the southern tip of Loch Lomond where we checked into our lodgings.

Tomorrow, we move north to Loch Ness and Grantown-on-Spey.
