Balcary Bay

Cliff hike and lunch · April 2024

We took a short hike today at Balcary Bay near Kirkcudbright in Dumfries and Galloway. The sun was out, the views were excellent. We stopped in at Balcary Bay Hotel afterwards for a quick lunch.

Here are the photos.

We did the longer of the two routes available around to Rascarrel Bay and Loch Mackie. It took us around two hours, covering around 5km, and this time included several breaks to sit and look at the views.
