Another trip down memory lane.
Caught the bus intending to climb Brown Carrick Hill but was seduced by an Ayrshire coastal walk and didn't have the energy for the hill as well.
Got off at Maidens in the pouring rain, waited it out with cake at the Culzean Castle coffee shop, then followed the coastal path to Dunure.
From there followed the coast to Ayr, have always found this fine as long as the tide is out.
My day in pictures - castles, birds, and the sound of the sea sums it up.

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
