A gorgeous day out at Culzean

Today we visited Culzean Estate.

It was a glorious day...

First of all we stopped off at the walled garden (shame about my faulty camera!)

This climbing rose against the beautifully lichen-splotched stone wall caught my eye.

Wild flowers, love the strikingly simple shapes...

...and splashes of bold colours

The wildflower borders lead to this lovely cottage.

After a picnic lunch we walked a little way along the cliffs.

A view of Ailsa Craig.

We then descended though through the woods...

...to one of the beaches (this one accessible with pram!)

Fantastic bright green seaweed

Lovely lumpy rock formations

Cooling off some tired feet.

We had a great time and will definitely return at a later date. Despite spending most of the day there there was still much we didn't see and we were just visiting the grounds, nevermind trying to include a tour of the castle.

We were incredibly lucky with the weather too which always helps!
