Ailsa Craig DXpeditions

Ailsa Craig also known as "Paddy's Milestone" as it is halfway between Dublin and Glasgow and was passed many times with the Irish emigrants who settled in the Glasgow area in the last centuries.
It is all that is left of a volcanic plug made up mostly of micro-granite and used in the making of the world's best curling stones.
Ailsa is 1114 feet high and is 3/4 mile long by 1/2 mile wide and is 9 1/2 miles out from Girvan on the Ayrshire coast.
