With the Winter Olympics concluding in Sochi this last weekend I realised that I had taken a couple of photographs in the past weeks that have a (slight) connection.
|Firstly the CBF in Girvan. The
island in the distance is Ailsa Craig. It is a volcanic plug located 10 miles
offshore. It is made of a rare type of granite that is used for making curling
stones. Most stones in the world, including those used in Sochi, were quarried
from the island and made by Kays of Mauchline. |
The island is for sale! here
