An unadventurous lot, down on Ayrshire's Atlantic Coast.
the bar at the river mouth was well covered...
South of Ballantrae Bay the coastline is dominated by steep cliffs of dark Cambrian basaltic rocks. On this stretch we came across this particularly fine pillow lava. It looked like it had just oozed out of the volcano but that was about 500 million years ago.
