Eagle's Seat View
Eagle's Seat View
Ailsa Craig with a tiny cloud cap, viewed at Eagle's Seat as the paddle steamer “Waverley” left for the return journey to Ayr on a particularly good late-July afternoon. Formed by intense volcanic activity about 60 million years ago, the spectacular rocky island looks different on each side, with huge columnar cliffs rising straight up from the sea. Whatever the weather, a sail around the Craig is always a memorable experience.
