Walking Group - Week 4: West Kilbride

The sky was the bluest of blues last Wednesday, making it the perfect day for a trip to the coast.

West Kilbride was the destination with a visit to the town's Barony Centre to see an exhibition of ceramics from Ireland. It was a very varied and stimulating exhibition and one of the gallery volunteers very kindly gave the group some information about the various types of ceramics on display.

It would be wrong to visit a coastal town on such a lovely day and not take a walk to the shore, so after the exhibition our group went for a hike to the beach. It was cold and a bit windy but a beautiful day and the group arrived just in time to see a kite surfer launch himself into the sea.

The day was rounded off with walk back up the hill to the train station and then back to Glasgow.

The ceramics exhibition continues at the Barony Centre until 27th March. For further information visit http://www.crafttownscotland.org/irish-ceramics-exhibition-2/
