This chap was testing his paraglider skills by leaping off the hill and drifting down to the ground below, parallel to the surface so not too high in case of any awkward failures.

The wind from the north was giving him rising air to work with.

It's a lot safer than going up more serious hills, such as Kaim Hill above Fairlie, a popular spot for paragliding when there's a west wind.

The Big Idea on the far side of the River Irvine, now closed.

There have been all sorts of suggestions for this place including a new bridge to take traffic over to a proposed golf course and hotel complex.

That's just what Ayrshire needs - another golf course.

Irvine Harbour Point down by the river-mouth.

This is a popular spot for all sorts of water-based activities and is known as a very safe place to bathe.

Rumours of tiger sharks in the Firth of Clyde are particularly exaggerated.
