Barony Hill, Dailly. April 2013

The Skylark


Wild Garlic

Wood Sorrel

Barony Hill (319M)
Today Tuesday April 23rd I met the teacher at Dailly to do an 8 mile circular walk to Barony Hill, one I have blogged several times before with various groups the most recent in March 2012 Today we left the village on a dry breezy morning with the threat of rain all around us but as we climbed it improved with the odd glimpse of sunshine. Nice easy path to the summit was followed by a reasonably steep descent but again as there was only the two of us I was able to take my time and go at my own pace. Lunch stop was at the edge of the forrest where we had a discussion on the various wild flowers that were now in full bloom and to be honest the one neither of identified correctly was wood sorrel and here we were sitting at the edge of a wood!!! Spring birds namely skylarks were seen  flying around us on the hillside.Returned to Dailly along the side of the River Girvan to complete the walk in 4 hours which we both decided was nearly as fast as we used to do it so my efforts at getting back to full fitness are starting to pay off. Let's hope so and I can start my return to rambling at all levels with the various groups in Ayrshire and Wigtownshire in the near future.


  1. Nicely Done Gordon.
    Here's a little quiz. See if you can translate what you might have said when you fell and broke your leg from Japanese to English.


  2. For those readers who do not speak Japanese fluently it means "SH*T". You are quite correct Jim I did utter words very similar to this along with a few others .
