Corsewall Lighthouse and a couple of little bays on North Rhinns….

A rather splendid day again, still a bit chilly but so so sunny. Today we went to have a look at Corsewall Lighthouse at the very top of the Rhinns of Galloway.

Looking out over the Mull of Kintyre and the Isle of Arran the Lighthouse is now an hotel. There was no clear footpath but we wandered around the headland, watching the Gannets dive bombing and a ferry on its way off to Ireland.

After a while we moved on our aim – Dounan Bay, near South Cairn, a bit further down the western coast. After a pleasant walk down the lanes through open farmland we were almost there and guess what?

Cows!! Now I was assured that these cows having been hand reared are just nosy not aggressive but I’m afraid the memory is too fresh – so back up the hill we went to try and find another way down. Today we were lucky and found a route down to Dally Bay a neighbouring little sandy cove.

A lovely spot, especially in this glorious sunshine and not surprisingly we didn’t see another soul – we’re happy!

Before heading back up to the car we scrambled over the grassy rocks in between the two bays for a look at Dounan Bay (our original destination).

Two thoughts of the day:

I’m sure I had at least two but I’m too tired to remember them now!

  1. I will add a thought for the day.

    The rock from where you took the photo of the ferry is where we were married!

    We were piped down through those cows from the lighthouse… There were some horses in the flied who danced to the pipes. Lovely memories!
