Yesterday in the company of the teacher and his partner we carried out a recce for the forthcoming Newton Stewart walking festivall that we are both involved in . It was a glorious day as we followed the route through Lindsaystone woods to start the climb to Barony Hill. On the summit the views across this part of South Ayrshire are absolutely amazing,then we crossed over to the dis-used quarry complete with its old limekilns. Once down in the woods the forest floor was carpeted with wood sorrel and early flowering bluebells which hopefully will be in full bloom next month when we take the group walk. Another excellent sunny day out in this part of Ayrshire.
