Yesterday Saturday April 26th Cunninghame ramblers did an 8 mile hill walk from Fairlie to Dalry over the moors. 10 of us met at Kilwinning station to take the train to the start . It was a cloudy windy morning as we started out up a steep path through the glen to take us onto the moors at Lairdside Hill and over to Greenhill. A good pace was set today as it was quite cold and windy on the summits hence the reason for sighting the windfarms in this locallity. Lunch was taken in the shelter of some buildings before our last climb to Baidland Hill with its wonderful views right up towards Glasgow. Here we joined a minor road back to Dalry station where some of the walkers had parked their cars earlier and I caught the train home to Ayr. Super day out as usual with this rambling club and thanks to the leader once again for allowing me to join such a  fine group of walkers.
