Barassie Beach Kites
Troon, South Ayrshire
A few power kite flyers surfing off Barassie Beach - 23rd May, 2019.
This view is looking south-west over the harbour.
Ailsa Craig, a couple of bulk carriers in the Firth of Clyde and Lady Isle can all be seen clearly
as can the southern tip of Arran.

This was almost directly into the sun. The shadow of one kite and the
orange reflection of another are plainly visible on the sand.
Looking north you can easily see Irvine Point, Ardagh Glass in Irvine and Western Gailes Golf Club
as well as the wind farm at Busbie Muir on the left horizon 10 miles (16km) away.
The high flats in Irvine are listed for demolition in the near future.
This is a close view of a guy flying a Razor 10.
