ADRC Dailly trails walk. August 2011

Our starting point.

Leader explaining today's route.

Styles made the fences easier to climb.

A friendly Clydesdale came to see us.

A colourful garden in the village.

The River Girvan .

Not exactly the most picturesque place to stop for coffee.

This sculpture is supposed to represent "Jock Tamsons Bairns"

Lunch was taken on a woodland path.

The sun now made an appearance.

This Triumph Spitfire requires a degree of TLC.

The pilot was today's leader.
On a very cloudy dry Sunday morning I joined ADRC for a 7 mile walk around the village of Dailly in South Ayrshire. We were to do two different walks today both finishing in the village.25 of us set off first of all to do The Lindsayston Trail of about 3 miles which was a pleasant walk up the side of the burn in past a farm and back to the village. Our next walk was a wee bit longer and was called the Kilgrammie Woods trail which naturally took us along some woodland tracks where it was  a wee bit overgrown in places and soft underfoot. Once clear of the wood we stopped for lunch when the sun tried to make an appearance making it feel very warm. The last part of the walk was down a private road back to the start. An excellent walk for a Sunday nothing too strenuous which was a pleasant change at least for a couple of us who are used to the old tough hill walks.The pilot was thanked by all the walkers for a pleasant Sunday ramble on a lovely warm day.
