Yesterday Cunninghame ramblers put on additional walk to the programme,Maybole circular.. 8 of us met at the local baths to walk the 10 mile circuit that has become a firm favourite with many of the groups I walk with. On a bright breezy morning we made our way up Kildoon hill to the monument to admire the views of south ayrshire spreading out before us. Passing the kennels the dogs gave us a very noisy welcome as usual before we headed out into the country to a place known locally as murder hole. A new deer fence has been erected here to allow a new forest to be planted,unfortunately the machinery has obliterated the path so we had to make our own way through some rather boggy areas  trying carefully not to damage the newly sown saplings. Lunch was taken on a sheltered side of the hill as the breeze had strengthened over the last hour or so.Once down onto the road the walkers made their way back into Maybole to end a another great day out with thanks to Mr and Mrs walk leaders for putting on this walk a fairly short notice.
