A wander to the local ruin - Dunskey Castle, Portpatrick

Wednesday 15 May 2016
We felt we'd earned an easier day after our 45 miles on the bike yesterday.

Dunskey Castle is a ruin on the cliff top about half a mile from Portpatrick. 

It does involve climbing the steps at the south end of Portpatrick seafront, and about half a mile walk along a clifftop path.

And always the profusion of wildflowers, especially sea pink, bluebells, red campion, birdsfoot trefoil and spring squill.

There is a cove just beyond the castle, but we didn't investigate the way down.
We returned in the early evening for a sketching session.
