Cunninghame ramblers mid week walk on the River Ayr. October 2014

Lovely sunny day after yesterdays rain.

Wallace Burns Cairn at Oswald bridge.

Some large Fungi was spotted

He just loves talking to the horses

Passing the West of Scotland University campus in Ayr.

Known locally as tomato lane
The twitcher was our leader
of a very jovial group. 
Today on a lovely crisp Autumn day 20 of us gathered at Auchencruive college car park for a 10 mile walk into the town of Ayr on the River Ayr way. First stop was the Wallace Burns cairn before crossing over a very muddy field to return to  the river at the by pass just outside the town. Quick coffee stop and we made our way into Ayr stopping at various points of interest. Lunch in the grounds of the Auld Kirk was followed by a lovely 5 mile walk on the other side of the river back to the start. A super walk with various sightings of birds including one of a kingfisher which are very hard to spot. Thanks to our twitcher leader who was leading his first walk for the group,it was a great success sir.

  1. If me and the girls had got to Ayr earlier we might just have bumped into you.
    I like the way you're collecting a grand range of nicknames.
    Have a spooky night.
