Not many of this type of drinking fountain still exist.
My finishing point today.
Today 33 ramblers set off from Straiton on a fairly pleasant sunny morning to do an 8 mile walk on some of the hills around the village. I knew that I would not be able to complete the walk but had looked at the map and worked out a possible route for myself missing out monument hill. However we had only gone about 2 miles and already I was feeling the fairly fast pace set by this fit group of ramblers when I decided that I may hold them all back whilst I negotiated or should I say stumbled over the wet ground so decided to return on the path we had used since the village I carefully made my way back. Once onto hard roads the going was a lot easier and made my way to the village of Crosshill via Blairquan Castle where I caught a bus back to Ayr. My total walking distance was 8 miles and if you add that onto my last 2 recent walks a total of 24 miles has been covered in 7 days I just cannot do rough wet ground yet but that will come with time.
