Todays happy group

with our leader.
Yesterday Saturday September 19 Ayr and District ramblers were doing a 10 mile walk from Turnberry to Culzean Castle returning back along the shore.22 of us set off on a lovely sunny morning along the Turnberry shore with its wonderful views over to the island of Arran towering up in the distance. Care was taken as we crossed over the hallowed links now known as Trump turnberry golf course that we did not upset the players who were also enjoying the fine weather. Once in the Maidens we stopped for our usual morning break allowing us a rest whilst some of us reminisced about how the village once looked as a thriving fishing community sadly no more.In Culzean estate there is a new childrens adventure playground built close by the swan pond. Judging by the number of children and a few adults enjoying the various rides  this will very quickly become a highlight of a visit to the estate.Lunch was taken at the Home farm accompanied by a few wasps before I thanked the leader for the first part of her walk but as I had travelled to Turnberry by bus I decided to carry on to Dunure along the Croy shore to catch the bus back to Ayr.The group did a tour of the walled gardens and then returned to Turnberry on the mornings route.
