Cunninghame ramblers. Maybole with a twist. July 2014

Our large group today

The deerstalker was the walk leader.
On Sunday July 13 Cunninghame ramblers went to Maybole to do a well known walk but today was to be a wee bit different and was described in the programme as "Maybole with a twist". 22 of us left the car park at the local swimming baths and made our way out towards Craigfin Hill which was the twist in the walk we were going to do it in the reverse direction which gave us completely different views that we normally associate with this route. It was a clear pleasantly warm day as we crossed over the open moorland until we arrived at the plaque to a sinister murder which was carried out by one of thelocally famous Kennedys well over 100 years ago.A visit to the monument on top of Kildoon Hill was a fitting end to this rather jovial walk with thanks the deerstalker for leading the group on such a fine outing.
