Pictorial blethers

Blue remembered hills ...

These last few days have been characterised by misty mornings, swirling gently into blue, sunny afternoons. Today, however, the mist remained on the Firth, especially towards Arran and Ayrshire; my phone kept chirping with updates from CalMac ferries telling of cancellations or boats lurking outside Ardrossan harbour, unable to enter because of the fog. From where we were walking over the farmland of the Ardyne area, we could hear the mournful hooting of foghorns to the south of us, and see the great banks of cloud still lurking over the water.

Here you can see a white cloud in the middle of the horizon; the layer of land directly in front of it is Bute and beyond and rising above the fog is Goatfell on Arran. As for the ruined but still imposing building in the foreground fields, I haven't the least idea what it was before it fell into a roofless pile. Feel free to enlighten me ...
