David Mellor, one time MP, then had a brief radio career, broadcasting for a classical music channel. His programme was based on the ( I thought then ) rather clever idea, that if you liked that, then you will like this. If there was a problem with the concept, he was often wrong, and I didn't.
But you see the idea cropping up again, and again, on shopping websites, were they endeavour to coerce you into buying more, by using the very same idea, that others shoppers went on to buy this or this, and also bought that or that. Any idea more conducive to making the population bland, homogeneous and unthinking I cannot imagine, and it should be stopped !
But anyway, maybe, if you liked that, then you might like this.
Captured the same day, a few miles further down the coast, the image is very similar, not surprisingly. The main post is looking slightly northwards, the WS is looking in the opposite direction, towards the Galloway hills.
As with Ardrossan yesterday, Streetview shows Troon in a rather better light.

not really an comfortable day, as it looks in your capture here, but with a bit more sun and better conditions for sure a real nice place to stay, or to do an walk..
thanks for sharing, see you around, cheers Bernd

I like that! Long landscsape size, dull day, and we walk along the beach to the end of the village. 6 months to wait to have bright sunshine!
