Our leader.
Yesterday March 21 Cunninghame ramblers met at West Kilbride railway station to catch the train to Largs to do a 9 mile walk back to the start. 17 of us set off along the shore front in Largs on a fine mild sunny morning with a very tranquil Firth of Clyde glistening in the sunlight, an absolutely perfect day for an outing. After 2 miles we reached the village of Fairlie where we had a wee break on the shore before climbing up past the castle out onto the moors. At this height the views were amazing over to Arran with a distant Ailsa Craig in the background, an ideal spot for our lunch break.Once reaching West Kilbride tea and scones were enjoyed in one of the many tearooms that the village has to offer. Many thanks to our leader who led the group for a second time this week both days in wonderful sunshine.
