Dailly to Maxwellston Hill circular. June 2012

My fellow walkers.
Today Thursday June 14 together with the teacher and colour co-ordinator we met in Dailly at the square to do a walk and also a possible recce for a group outing to Maxwellston Hill (314M) returning by Penwhapple resevoir / wind farm.This is a 9 mile circular walk two of us had done before with Cunninghame Ramblers back in February 2012.Today we climbed up Hadyard Hill on our way to Maxwellston and Penwhapple resevoir where we had a lunch stop watching anglers trying to catch a bite.Passing through the wind farm some of the turbines were still under construction which made for a bit of fun watching the  guys suspended on a rope at the end of one of the blades not a job for the faint hearted. From here we followed the road down to the Lindsayston woods and back to Dailly.
Excellent walk particularly in the afternoon we  were in the sunshine for quite a while making it a very pleasant walk with climbing ,moorland tracks and road walking providing a little of everything for all to enjoy.
