Today Wednesday May 23rd Cunninghame Ramblers met at the Pencil monument in Largs for a 10 mile walk up to Knock Hill (217M). After my exertions of yesterday this was a comparitively easy walk which was  very welcome as it was a very hot day. Nineteen of us set off along the promenade until we reached the Brisbane Glen road to take us up a track to Knock Hill with its fort on top.Once on the summit we had a very leisurely lunch stop to admire the hills and lochs glimmering away in the warm sun. Our resident rambling meteorologist informed us the mercury had now hit 23 degrees C. even at this height with a very gentle breeze blowing from the South West made it difficult for the leader to get us all up and on the go again , one or two were having a wee nap in sunshine!! Once we were down on a country road the route took us by Knock Castle and back down into Largs which by now was very busy with lots of people enjoying a stroll along the shore or queuing at the ice cream shops. Back at the cars the leader was thanked for his efforts today, they were very much appreciated by everyone, the pace he set was just right considering the heat we all had to endure . Honest sir there were no complaints, well done.
