We parked at the Ardwell Picnic site.
This board is about Chapel Rossan Bay and the Murder Stone
Small boat being towed from the water.
Sun glinting on the sea.
The trail now crosses the road….
…and follows the field edge before crossing back over the road into the woods.
Huge bracket fungus on the ground
Autumn beech leaves
I love this farmhouse across the road with its castellated roof
This is where we went wrong and lost the track for a while, we should have turned right over the wall but instead headed down the track-oops!
Chapel Rossan Bay looking north
I think this might be the lower mandible of a gannet
Small Tortoiseshell making the most of the sunshine
Grey Seal, at least theres live ones around too!
Interpretation board about the windmill
On the rocks
One of the new bridges on the trail
Lots of little bits of land owned by the MOD around here.
Looking for life in the rockpools…
New England bay looking towards The Mull of Galloway
Ruby Tiger caterpillar
Fox moth caterpillar
Bright-line Brown-eye moth caterpillar
A closer view of the windmill on the way back
Brown Hare on the beach, not something you see often
Silver Y moth
We managed to find the right route on the way back!
This is the sign we missed!
Back along a deserted beach to our car
A lovely walk!
