Re: Turnberry Lighthouse

Thanks Dawn. If you quickly scroll down the images, you can see a clear difference as the Sun sets, changing the light from gold to blue.
I only wish I had been there 20 mins earlier, because the view of the Sun sitting halfway over the horizon, was one of the most spectacular I'd ever seen.
Next time
Its a lovely set Mande, as I said the colours are beautiful, Ive looked at them 4 times now!

It looks like you stopped somewhere a good bit before the road to the lighthouse. Did you have to walk much?
I had to walk for miles
I parked in the Maidens. There is a car park by the harbour, and I genuinely thought it was a lot closer to the lighthouse. I didn't want to cut across the golf course, so I stuck to the shore line, but nobody told me it was nearly all jagged rocks and cliff faces all the way round from the Maidens to the lighthouse.
And nobody told me about that path you mentioned either
I'll definitely be looking for that next time, that's for sure.

Thanks to Phil, Pepsi and Sam for your comments too.

Much appreciated.
