Miss Piggy was our leader (she keeps pigs)
Today Cunninghame ramblers met at Hurlford (home of the Scottish junior cup winners) for an 8 mile circular walk to Galston. 21 of us left on a cloudy morning with a forecast of some sunny spells later on. We made our way along the River Irvine sometimes on tracks and also on hard roads until we came to the ruins of Loudoun Kirk where our leader gave us a brief resume of its history. Lunch was taken on the outskirts of Galston before joining the Sir Chris Hoy cycle way for the last few miles back the start in warm glorious sunshine to end a fine walk. Thanks again to our leader who was ably assisted by her sister today for an excellent walk along the riverside with an excellent group of ramblers. Thanks.
