Elite walkers. Straiton circular. April 2012
Today 3 of us decided to to do a 7 mile circular walk at the lovely village of Straiton in South Ayrshire. We met at the car park on a cold windy morning ,last week we were in shorts and T shirts not today it was blowing a hooly from the North East more like weather for the brass monkeys. This is a walk we have done before the most recent with Cunninghame Ramblers which I blogged back in November 2011.We climbed Monument Hill before doing a new circuit which took in Largs and Kildoach hills before descending down to Craig Farm. Now we had a steep ascent up to the summit of Bennan Hill when the snow and sleet came on coupled with the wind it was becoming a wee bit unpleasant to say the least so we decided to to just make our way back to the car park and call it a day.No photos today the conditions did not lend themselves to photography but it was still an enjoyable walk reminding us that the Scottish winter is still not over.
