 Yesterday Tuesday October 14 Cunninghame ramblers met at Farlie railway station for an 8 mile walk over the top of the moors and return by Kelburn Estate. 13 of set off up a sttep climb up the glen on a gloriously sunny cool morning, once we reached the moorland the wind was blowing a wee hooley making for some wonderfully clear conditions across the Firth of Clyde. After crossing over to Brown Hill (344M) we came across the remaians of a  World Warr 11 plane before descending to a road which took us back towards Kelburn Estate where we found a sheltered spot for our lunch stop. The last 3 miles or so was on a stiff muddy track above the estate back to the forest to pick up the path down to the station to end a pleasant day out in the autumn sunshine. Our leader did his best to keep us altogether in some quite difficult terrain, well done sir.

  1. I opened that first picture full size in a new tab Gordon. What a fantastic view. Would look great on a calendar.
    A classic sir, well done.
