Dean Valley Country Park was the first we visited, although it is right near a housing estate we had a nice walk and there is a pets corner, so we had a chat with the donkeys and other animals. It was an extremely cold day and parts of the river were frozen.

Our next place we visited was Irvine, I love places with old boats and plenty of photo oportunities, so although there were too many people we still enjoyed it.
We stayed and watched the sun go down even though it was bitter cold, as its a great place for sunsets.
The next day we were going home but determined to have another good walk before heading back. The sun was shining and there was great views of Arran with the snow on the mountains so we headed for Egleston Country Park.
A nice morning walk around the loch, which was partly frozen and distant views of Whooper Swans.

There were interesting castle ruins here too!
