Mochrum Hill near Maidens. August 2012

On the summit of Mochrum Hill (270M)
Today Thursday August 30th the teacher and myself decided to climb Mochrum Hill using a route I first did with South Ayrshire Ramblers earlier on this month . Starting at the beginning of this wee tale the teacher and I went to Glasgow yesterday to look for some computer cables and have a good old Indian curry in the Village Curry Restaurant situated on the south side of the River Clyde.Once back on the bus back to Ayr one of us decided to go home whilst the other went for a pint or six in Weatherspoons and eventually arrived home a wee bit Brahms and Liszt at 11.00PM no prizes for guessing who that was. Back to today we set off from the the Maidens on a clear sunny windy morning along the shore to Culzean Castle and through the estate to Mochrum Hill. We had our lunch stop there which was amazing today it was so clear the Island of Arran was only a stones throw away with all its wee houses lit up in the sunshine. We tried a different way down  which was where we experienced some difficulties as the route was very overgrown with ferns which were taller than me made the going a little tough. Anyway we made it to the castle gates to end our 8 mile walk in the sunshine to get our buses home. Fantastic day  with wonderful views all around us.

  1. I guess there was no 'Real Ale' in Weatherspoons then.
    Talking of Arran, there's a Paul Merton programme on sometime next week.
    Should be interesting.
