Hello Scotland! We took a ferry from Belfast to a tiny town called Cairnryan, which is our names put together!
There was nowhere to stay or eat in Cairnryan, especially since it was a Sunday, so we walked six hot miles along the shore of Loch Ryan to the town of Stranraer. Ryan tried to annoy Karen by playing “The Ants Go Marching” over and over in a shrill octave on the penny whistle, but she was just impressed instead.
In Stranraer we camped at a campsite swarming with rabbits. They were everywhere, hopping randomly and being very picky about the best blades of grass. The campsite lady said they were pets.
We took a bus to Culzean Castle, considered to be architect Robert Adam’s masterpiece. The rest of the post will be photos so you can see for yourself. We’re absolutely loving Scotland so far.
P.S. We camped just near Culzean Castle, overlooking the sea in our own architectural masterpiece.
