Ayrshire Coast of Scotland and Armagh, Ireland

Travel diary

After a morning in Edinburgh we retraced our route west through Glasgow and south, passing again through the Ayrshire coast and this time stopping at Culzean (Cul-thayne) Castle, top, and Turnberry golf course, second photo, on an afternoon brilliant with sunshine.

Next day early we took the ferry from Stranraer (Stran-RAH-er) back to Belfast and reconnected with the rental vehicle. South and west we went for Armagh, the primatial sea founded by Saint Patrick, "Himself".



We first explored the more ancient church in the primatial see city dedicated to the apostle of Ireland and run by the establishment Church of Ireland, third photo from top. Then it was over to the neighboring hilltop with us to see the more recent Catholic edifice, also dedicated to the apostle of Ireland and made necessary by the "possession is 9/10ths of the law" effect following the Protestant revolution.
