ADRC . Knockdolian and Barbeque. June 2013

A members brand new car.

We had to stop to remove jackets.

Getting ready to climb "Knockdolian"

Already quite well spread out.

Almost there.

Everyone made it to the summit.

Barbeque on the shore.

Once we were all fed and watered.

Guess which one was the chef!!
Back in business thanks to a visit from my son who has installed a new server and resolved my problems.
Yesterday Saturday June 29th ADRC  left Ayr to go to Ballantrae for a 6 mile walk up Knockdolian to be followed by a barbie on the shore organised by Anne and myself. 21  of us made our way on a mild cloudy morning along the road that would lead us to the start of the climb where we stopped for a coffee break prior to the serous business of the day. I am pleased to report all members made it safely to the summit to enjoy the wonderful views of the Clyde and beyond. The descent is always a wee bit scary in places but it was not long until everyone was back down on to the road back to Ballantrae. At this point Anne collected me in the car so that we could go back to the shore and light the barbie. Madam Vice very kindly took over as leader of the group for the return leg to Ballantrae.Anne and I soon had everything organised for the group when they returned to enjoy burgers,chicken and salads.Thankfully the rain stayed off  to make it another memorable barbeque which subject to the committees approval will be repeated again next year.


  1. Waited 4 years to do this and I was not disappointed - huge thanks to yourself and your good lady for a fab day. Ali M.
