From Edinburgh to Stranraer it takes about 4 hours, with bus. A very scenery route along green fields with mountains in the background, through Glasgow streets … Ayr and Girvan … along the Ayrshire coastline with a stunning view of the island Ailsa Craig.
It’s Citylink’s bus 923 that does the journey 3 times per day.
It was fantastic weather both days of my travel, but on my return to Edinburgh the wind was icing cold.
I tried to catch some of the many new born lambs out on the green fields, but every time I had a cute creature in sight the bus toke up the speed, so no luck with my lamb hunting.
On the return journey to Edinburgh there was a car accident in Ayr – the cars was quite damaged but nobody seems to been seriously injured. One police man got the traffic floating very quickly, but our driver had to deal with some headless drivers along the route.
Bonnie Scotland, you and your people always embrace me.
“Bonnie Scotland I adore thee,
Though I’m far across the sea.
With loneliness before me,
My thoughts lie back with thee.
Oh my country I can see it noo –
The bonny heather braes.
An dreams of all my childhood there,
Bring back such happy days.
Bonnie ….. Scotland
Whaur the life is braw
Ma hert is aye in Scotland,
Though I am far awa.
Take me back amang the wild woods,
An view the rowan tree.
Tae wander by yer ain wee hoose,
It’s aye sae dear tae me.
Dear tae me, it’s dear tae me.”
All images are taken from bus 923 …. and I was lucky that Oscar was willing to be on his best behavior. I think we did a pretty good job, consider 98% of them is taken in max limited speed.
