South Ayrshire Ramblers. Auchinleck to Lugar circular. March 2012

Lunch in Cumnock Park

Our leader was a wee touch camera shy!!
Today Sunday March 25th I met up with South Ayrshire ramblers for an 9 mile circular walk starting in Auchenleck.This was to be a nice gentle walk after yesterdays exertions so I volunteeered to be the back marker a position which I have not found myself in for some time.This is a walk I first did back in June 2011 with Cunninghame Ramblers and more recently I did a further short blog when I did the recce with todays leader earlier on this month.Today saw 20 walkers leave the supermarket car park in lovely warm sunshine to walk along the river to our first stop at Cumnock park. From here we visited the railway viaduct at the water of Lugar before some pleasant forestry walking in the award winning woods. After lunch we went passed Dumfries House and round the estate as we made our way back to the start to end a very pleasant day in the early summer weather. Thanks to our leader, who like me yesterday, was wondering what we had done to deserve such gorgeous weather for our walks. Thanks again also to the group for allowing me to be the back marker it was a bit of fun and one I will help you with again but not in the forseeable future!!
