  1. Did you go in the castle? I had seen the castle as one of the backgrounds bin Windows 7 but had no idea where it was until I got to this bit of the coast. I did go in and enjoyed it.

    • Yes it was great. This was one part of the coast I hadn’t researched ahead of time so it was a complete, and spectacular surprise.

    It feels like some of these photos were inspired by Joan Eardley herself! Lovely.
