Dinner at Souter Johnnie's
6/2/17 - 6/2/17 70 °F
This morning I drove down to Gordon and Maureen's house in Ayr. They were going to take me to Portpatrick today. Gordon drove and we headed down the coast road all the way to Portpatrick. The drive was beautiful and the weather was sunny and fairly warm. I don't ever remember being at Portpatrick before, so it was nice to go somewhere I have not been. We parked at the Harbor and had lunch outside, yes I said outside right in front of the harbor. It was beautiful. We then walked around the harbor area and took a hike up to a castle called Dunskey Castle. As you can see from my pictures, the castle was very cool. It was perched on a cliff and all rugged rocks underneath it. From the castle you can see all the way down the coastline. In the far distance you can also see Ireland. We walked around some more through the town, to an old church and graveyard that were right in the middle of town. We then drove up to the other side of the harbor to get a different view of Portpatrick. We left Portpatrick and took a military road that followed the shore. We passed Culzean Castle and Gordon stopped along the road, so I could take a picture. The weather was beautiful and the coast looked so pretty as we drove along it. We had a great view of Alisa Craig from the road. We drove to Souter Johnnie's in Kirkoswald for dinner and it was really fun. I went back to Gordon and Maureen's for awhile to download my pictures, and then drove back to Cumnock. Gordon and Maureen, thanks for such a wonderful lunch, dinner and the company for the day. I had a great time in sunny Scotland!
