A week in Ayr, Scotland

We've just had a wonderful holiday in Ayr with Mark's parents. We rented a cottage which was part of Blairquhan Castle (if you click on accommodation, then cottages and then Kennedy cottage you'll see our cottage!) It was an amazing place to stay, very peaceful and relaxing. There was a little swing park for Charlie to play on, a beautiful lake where we went to feed the geese and ducks. Also an enchanting secret walled garden. Hughie and I rented out bikes so we could explore the grounds, unfortunately the bikes weren't very well maintained and I had a puncture, it was repaired but it must have had 2 as the tyre went straight back down, LOL! On the Thursday morning we were given a tour of the castle which was very good and the views were stunning! The castle is up for sale at the moment with a whopping £4.85 million tag!!!
If i'm honest the castle was quite remote, which in a way was a good thing but it meant a little trek every time we went out. We had some fantastic days out! A farm park, the Electric Brae (which we couldn't feel, LOL) Dunure Castle, Ayr shopping, the beach, Mark, Charlie and I went to Cambrae Island where we hired bikes and cycled around the border of the island (approx 10 miles) plus we did loads more!! On the way home we took a small detour to take Charlie to Hadrian's Wall.
I've made a picasa collage of the photos as there were so many I wanted to show, i've left it full size so if you click on it you can see the photos in more detail.
