Arran Trip Continued

On Monday we went to Machrie beach near the golf course. There is a little park there which kept the kids amused while Richie and Gayle tied their bikes to the front of my car to keep them secure while we were on the beach.
We actually went in search of rock pools but didn't find any. Mum and Ellie had a great time fishing in the sea and collecting shells in the bucket instead.
After the beach and a picnic lunch we headed off to the Lighthouse Cafe at Pernmill for a cuppa but when we got there it was closed. So we went on a cafe hunt round the island and ended up in Lochranza.

Here Chloe and Ellie found a rather tame wild deer which they both fed some grass to later on but unfortunately I didn't get a photo of that. I was too busy chasing after Josh who didn't like all the deer poo around the place while he was eating his icecream!

We managed to find a nice place on the rocks to sit and eat where there was no deer droppings and Josh soon cheered up again.

Then we took a gentle stroll round to Lochranza Castle which is just a ruin now, there's not that much left of it but there is just enough to lock up the bad people!!! :-)

This is Josh sitting in the part that used to be the kitchen.

This was taken inside Lochranza Castle. There's Richie, Gayle, Ellie (just in front of them), Mum, Josh, and Chloe just in front of Mum.

On the way back to the car from the castle Richie found a butterfly and Ellie and Chloe took it in turns to hold it on their hands.
