I had another trip down the Clyde to the sailmakers in Largs today.  The Ayrshire farmland was covered in frost when I set off but the day turned out bright and sunny.  So at midday I stopped opposite the island of Arran and had a coffee from my flask ("Thermos" to North Americans) at the roadside.

Ailsa Craig is a conical shaped island in the lower Clyde - last sight for emigrants leaving Scotland for the New World.
