Balcary Bay Walk

Rob, Brock and I went on a coastal walk today. It was about 4 miles long and started at the car park next to the Balcary Bay Hotel. A similar walk can be found here. It was muddy in places, with some very narrow paths next to steep cliffs (not for the faint hearted!). There were sheep and lambs, donkeys, cattle and calves along the route, so dogs will need to be on a lead at all times.

The start of the walk.

It was a very windy day, which made the cliff top section rather hair raising in every sense of the phrase!

The waves were crashing onto the rocks at the base of the cliffs: very dramatic!

We had a delicious late lunch at The Loch Arthur Creamery Restaurant at Beeswing. Very highly recommended!
