A Wee Trip to Millport

Such a lovely spring sunny day today that I opted for a trip to Millport.

Caught a reasonable shot of the 'Solitaire' as I passed through Largs.

Across on the CalMac ferry to Cumbrae, then the bus to Millport about four miles down the island.

It felt more like summer and fish and chips was firmly on the menu. The local shop is owned by a very hospitable Turk and the food was excellent.

Then on to a nice ice cream with raspberry sauce to round off the lunch.

A good blather with the owner of the cycle hire shot and he suggested the seals would be a worthwhile visit - so duly obliged.

Walked back to the Cumbrae slip for the ferry and back in Largs about 18:00.

A great day out and very rewarding on all fronts.
