Today's large group.

A happy but drookit walk leader.
Today Saturday November 10th South Ayrshire ramblers met at Dalcairney Farm where the walk leader had got permission from the owner to use the yard as a car park.Passing Dalcairny Falls 33 walkers made their way up to the  cottage known as Little Shalloch where we had a wee break for some coffee and snacks.Next was a boggy moorland walk until we reached the forest with it's path to take you round the Black Loch over to the Widow's Loch. Speculation amongst the walkers as to how it was named  must remain confidential on this family orientated blog.Once passed the lochs we made our way to another ruined cottage known as Meikle Shalloch where we had a lunch stop in the rain that had just come on and was not forecasted to start until well into the afternoon.Making our way back through the forest we arrived back at the farm to end this 9 mile circular walk most of it in fairly dry conditions except for the lunch break. Well done to the leader for keeping such a large group under control it was not an easy task with so many different abilities out today. Super walk and excellent company.
