Hackley Bay

Date walked: 25/01/2022

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 6km

Ascent: 100m

Image
I just make it to the Collieston car park turn-off for sun rise.

Image
But still a few minutes to wait for the sunlight to reach Sand Loch.

Image
Interesting light before the sun rises above the horizon.

Image

Image

Image

Image
The swans and ducks have woken up and started work.

Image

Image
Hackley Head and Aberdeen to the south.

Image
Smaller bay along the way.

Image

Image
The last rise before Hackley Bay.

Image
First glimpse of Hackley Bay.

Image
Steps ahead to avoid dangerous cliff descent.

Image

Image
The last arc of the main path above the bay yields fine views all along the way.

Image

Image

Image
Not the way down!

Image

Image
Can't miss it.

Image
On the beach.

An only partially forced smile.

Image

Image
A welcome splash of black and tangerine. They are united in their search for a point in their recent lives.

View from near Hackley Head.

Image

Image

Image
Not a bad bay, I would say or was it just the fine morning that made it seem that way?

Did the tree that fell on Waughton Hill make a sound?
