Made it down to the coast last night, beautiful night with incredible colours
Ailsa Craig (Scottish Gaelic: Creag Ealasaid) is an island in the outer Firth of Clyde, Scotland
The now uninhabited island is formed from the volcanic plug of an extinct volcano.
From the mid-19th to mid-20th centuries, the island was quarried for its rare type of micro-granite with riebeckite (known as "Ailsite") which is used to make curling stones. As of 2004, 60 to 70% of all curling stones in use were made from granite from the island.[7] The floor of the Chapel of the Thistle in St Giles Cathedral, Edinburgh is also made of this rock.
