Cunninghame ramblers. Barr trails. August 2014

What a beautiful day to go for a walk.

Tea break in the forest

It does not get much better than this.

Care had to be taken on this stretch.

This guy managed to get a seat at the "ladys" table.

Lunch at Kirstys cairn

Bridge taking the strain of the large group

Leader with the sweets
Yesterday Wednesday August 27 Cunninghame ramblers met at Barr a lovely picturesque village situated in the hills of South Ayrshire.26 of us assembled in the village square on a perfect warm sunny morning to head off up onto the hills and into Changue forest. Once in the forest  we went along a track known as the Fairy Knowe which meanders its way through very tall trees allowing the sun to shine through casting unusual light onto the ground ahead of the walkers. Lunch at the Kirstys cairn was followed in the afternoon with a further forestry walk taking us all high into the hills above the village with the wonderful views of the countryside all around us. A good track took us all  down back to our starting point to end an absolutely excellent 7 mile walk in conditions which could only be described as perfect. Thanks to the teacher for leading us on one his favourite walks (The traffic commissioner wonders how he manages to organise the weather )
