Picture of a rider in high fernPicture of riders on the cliffs high above the waterAs the repair of the Landrover unfortunately took a bit longer than expected the rides had to change to local rides. Today we rode out to the cliffs. Through Lochorodale Forest and around Cnoc Moy we arrived at the coast. It was mainly cross country, at best along a few sheep paths.

Then it was down the cliffs and hills until we reached as small bay at the bottom of the cliffs. This was also the place where we let the horses rest and had our lunch. After lunch I walked around the bay and took a variety of pictures of the bay and its residents: Lots of goats (and some sheep).

After a while it was time to ride back to Homeston. We rode up the hills and cliffs again, crossing a burn on the way. Soon we arrived back on top of the cliffs, then it was back to Homeston Farm through the woods.
