Day 5 - July 16th - Highland Games and Ayrshire Coastal Path


The Loch Lomond Highland Games are held at Balloch, a county park at the southern end of Loch Lomond. 

Ready, steady... GO!

There was a display of raptors among the vendors. This is a Spotted Eagle.

Caber Toss - first you stand the 200 pound, 20-foot-long log on its end...

...then you throw it. The point is to have the caber rotate completely, strike the ground with the opposite end, and come to rest directly in line. 

Hammer Toss

After the Highland Games, we drove down to Largs in Ayrshire, and the Scouts did a 5-mile hike on the Ayrshire Coastal Path from Largs to Skelmorlie.

Foxgloves along the path

The hike ended at Meigle Beach outside Skelmorlie.

Our Scouts took a break on the beach until the rain started, and then we drove back to Bishopton for a good dinner and an unplanned relaxed evening.
