Irvine

Also at Irvine, the smartly painted "Kyles". After this we headed further down the coast, finally heading inland from Ayr, where no ships were to be seen.

Irvine

Following the road round the coast, we popped in to Kip Marina (potential boat home in a few years) then stopped for a brekkie at Wemyss Bay. Then further down the coast to Irvine and finally a chance for me to visit the harbour in daylight with my camera, having been up with work on several occasio...

Gourock

Very luckily (for me) as we ventured along the coast road, we were just about to leave a spot at Gourock as the "Saturn" came sprinting into view. Not in the best of spots I took a few views with the jetty in the way. Also took "Loch Tarbert" berthed here. saturn.jpg saturn2.jpg lochtarbert.jpg

In James Watt dock today 27/02/11. We had an early start from Bearsden to head across the river and down the coast to Ayr - the McD's was spotted and rather than have food I went to the dock - must get my priorities right :mrgreen:
