Todays large group

Our leader for the walk.
Yesterday Saturday February 22nd I travelled by bus to Turnberry where I met up with ADRC who were walking to Culzean Castle and estate. On a clear windy morning 35 well wrapped up walkers left the car park and went down onto the shore to take us along to the world famous Turnberry  lighthouse situated on the more famous golf course.At this point the track took us onto the golf links where we made a couple of stops to allow the golfers to enjoy their game without being distracted by a large group of ramblers.Continuing through the Maidens shore we were soon entering the extensive grounds of Culzean estate which are covered in snowdrops at this time of year.Passing the restored camellia house we made our way to the castle and onto Holm farm which was to be the lunch stop before retracing our steps back to Turnberry. At this point I opted out to catch a bus home to Ayr to see the RBS 6 nations rugby on the telly. (Scotland WON) Thanks to the leader for a pleasant winters walk in the sunshine and also to everyone in the group for making it a good fun day out.
