Cunninghame ramblers. Black Craig by Kirkconnel. June 2016

Meeting at the start

Tricky wee stile had to be crossed

Nobody loves me he was heard to say

A trio of beauties

Todays group

Our leader
We stopped for a break here.
On Tuesday June14th cunninghame ramblers travelled to Kirkconnel for a 13 mile walk up Blackcraig (700M) . On  a partly sunny morning 11 of us made away along some good forestry access roads before starting the ascent  up the hill. This was done at various stages to give us older members a wee break to catch our breath on the steep terrain. Lunch on the summit was a guessing game to name all the hills round about us ranging from East Lowther in the southern uplands to the hills in south ayrshire.A steep descent got us all safely back down to the forestry road and retrn to the cars. A fairly stiff 13 miles was enjoyed by all and apart from about 10 minutes of light drizzle it was a dry day. Thanks to the leader who was completing the walk for a second time in 2 days having taken ARDC group up on Sunday.
