Cunninghame ramblers. River Ayr linear walk to Catrine. May 2013

Group briefing.

Coffee stop

Kilmarnock rocket complete with new cap.

The photo says it all.

She said the hills keep getting steeper!

We passed Sorn on our walk.

Possibly put there by the local school children.

Sorn Castle.

Forgot to take the leader's photo so here is one I took earlier.
Yesterday Tuesday May 7th I joined Cunninghame Ramblers on a 9 mile walk along the River Ayr Way from Greenock Bridge which is about 2 miles from Muirkirk to Catrine.16 of us set off on a glorious sunny morning which we found out later was the warmest day of the year along a very well constructed path by the river where we found a perfect little area for a coffee break. This was not a particularly difficult walk, it had it's little ups and downs to keep us all entertained. Lunch was taken near to the village of Sorn where the council have built a beautiful walk way through the woods high above the village so walkers can enyoy an aerial view of the local countryside. Rejoining the river path we passed Sorn Castle  which looked more like a very grand house standing in it's own large grounds. Arriving at Catrine the leader was thanked for all her hard work in organising today's linear walk as all leaders will know these walks are the hardest to organise. Super day to be out and about and I hope to see you all again soon.
