South Ayrshire Ramblers. Galston circular. April 2013

Lovely view out to Arran.

Unusual place for a coffee stop!

Cheer up!!

One of many stops to admire the views.

Lots of new born calfs in this field.

Today's group at Gallowlaw Cairn

I told the leader "head up not chest out"
Yesterday Saturday April 27th I travelled by bus to Galston where I met up with South Ayrshire Ramblers for a 9 mile circular walk in the hills above the town. 26 of us left from the car park at Barr Castle on a lovely sunny morning firstly to a woodland walk alongside the Haymouth Burn taking us up to a garden centre at Threepwood where we had a wee coffee stop. Once suitably refreshed we did some road walking towards the Darvel TV transmitter to get to our next goal which was a memorial cairn to the covenanters at Gallowlaw . One or two fences had to be negotiated so that we could avoid cattle who  were grazing in the fields. After a lunch stop at the cairn it was a nice pleasant road walk back down to the town passing  many large houses with their stables in the garden  for the childrens horses. Thanks to the leader for a very interesting and informative walk, it is always a pleasure to join this happy group.
