On Tuesday August 19 I met with the teacher in Girvan to do part of the recce for this weekends annual marathon with ADRC. It was a lovely sunny windy morning to do a shore walk as we made our way first to the Maidens and then onto Culzean and Dunure a total distance of about 15 miles. We finished there as yesterday we were off to Barr to recce next weeks Cunninghame ramblers walk on the forest trails.Again we chose a nice sunny day and ably assisted by the deerstalker and her cousin we did a further 8 miles working out different ways to vary a well known walk. Two most enjoyable days walking and now looking at weather forecasts for this Saturday which are favourable at present so all we need is a dry day to walk 27 miles to a well known watering hole in Ayr.
Footnote: Long trousers would be beneficial on the early part of the marathon due to tides we will have two small diversions which are fairly overgrown with nettles etc.
