Deer were keeping an eye on us.

A new method of getting over a gate.

I managed to get into the blog
Today Cunninghame ramblers met at Dean park in Kilmarnock for 6 mile circular walk to Craufordland Castle near Fenwick. With myself as walk leader 28 walkers met at the car park and after welcoming guests from Eastwood and Kilmarnock groups we were soon on our way in the early morning sunshine. Passing through the park we took time to admire the autumn colours on the trees all lit up in their different shades of copper and bronze. Once  out of the park the road took us under the A77 ,over a ford and onto a pleasant open field walk with lots of stiles to be crossed which slowed the group down but on a morning like today who was in a hurry. After a short tea break beside the river we made our way into Craufordland estate to the fishery pond with lots of anglers enjoying their chosen sport. A very enjoyable woodland walk through the estate on an old coaching road to the bridge over the A77 back to an equestrian centre before we entered another wood to take us down the side of the river and back to our starting point. A super day out with such a large group made it a most enjoyable walk in the late autumn sunshine.
