Ah there she is!

Today's leader.
Yesterday Saturday June 1st ADRC travelled to Hurlford to do an 8 mile circular walk via Galston. A "baker's dozen" left the car park in Hurlford to join the Chris Hoy cycle track to Galston on a pleasant warm sunny morning. On reaching Galston the leader took us to a small garden that had been constructed by local school children in memory of those who were killed in the Dunblane massacre of 1996.We now crossed the river Irvine which took us past the remains of Loudoun Kirk which also served as a convenient place to have our lunch break in the grave yard with it's many places  to sit  and enjoy reading the inscriptions of the headstones.We now walked on a country road back to a path which took us down onto the banks of the River Irvine and back to Hurlford. Great walk in good company with thanks to our leader, ably assisted by hubbie, we only took one wrong turning during the walk! My tip for the Derby unfortunately did not win, so my sincere apologies for that but as I said at the time "don't listen to me ".
