Mr and Mrs walk leaders.
Yesterday I joined Cunninghame Ramblers for their midweek walk at Girvan. 17 of us met on a very warm sunny morning (yes we do get the occassional one) to do an 8 mile circular "B" walk to 3 hills in the area above the town. The first hill was Dow Hill (159M) which gave us our first glimpse of the wonderful views we were going to see today. Dropping down off the hill our leaders had found a really nice spot for coffee break complete with logs to sit on. Once refreshed it was good steady climb up a path to Laggan Hill (269M) and then past some Highland Cattle complete with large horns to take us to Troweir Hill (269M) with it's panoramic views of the Clyde where we had our lunch stop. We now headed back to the start via some steep slopes and the dreaded fences but as usual we all made it safely down ,some quicker than others!Everyone thanked the leaders for today's walk the weather and  magnificent scenery had made it a most memorable day out.
