Curling Stones and Gannets

One Island we will see during our Mile Building trips to the Hebrides and RYA courses out of Troon is Ailsa Craig. A Volcanic Plug it has some incredibly hard ‘Blue Hone’ Granite from which the majority of all Curling Stones are produced.

Also known as Paddy’s Milestone it is home to many Gannets and Puffins. On the market for £1.5M we might stop by as it is close to Troon where we will be absed for summer 2018, but I doubt I will put in a bid!
