Ayrshire Day Out


Another Friday day off means another little day out / road trip with Suzie!  This time we decided to visit Ayrshire.  We visited Heads of Ayr Farm Park, Electric Brae, Ayr Beach & Cecchini's Italian Restaurant.

What a lovely day we chose for it the weather was scorching!  How lucky we were.  The first stop for us was Heads of Ayr Farm Park.  I didn't actually take too many pictures while we were there

Cute baby prairie dog!



Did I mention it was pretty hot?  We decided it would be nice just to have a wee sit down / lie in the sun and relax for a bit, so out came the beach towels, and of course snapchat filters!  Haha.





After leaving Head of Ayr Farm Park, we headed for Electric Brae.  I thought it would be good to check it out while we were over that way! The only thing was, I couldn't find anywhere to turn around once we'd passed it, so did a few extra miles finding somewhere suitable! I got a tiny sense of the whole looking like you are going uphill when you are going downhill feeling, but I don't think you can really appreciate it until you are either cycling, or stopping your car and letting it freewheel, which I couldn't do as there were cars in front and behind - and I don't think I would have liked to anyway considering it is just after a corner!

The scenery was stunning between the Farm Park and Electric Brae.  After stopping in a layby to let an ambulance past - great timing! - the scenery was too nice not to stay there for a bit and take some pictures!  We could see Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Arran really clearly.

Once we returned to Ayr, we went for a nice walk along the beach.  I had a 99 cone, as what trip to the beach is complete without one...!?  After that it was time to go for (proper) food, and our restaurant of choice was Cecchini's.  The food was lovely and service brilliant.


The sunset was stunning when we walked back to the car park, so I shall end with this lovely picture...
