Around Straiton

I expected less showers today and had planned to go to Straiton, got there just in time for a shower so went into The Buck cafe for some yummy chocolate cake and coffee.
Started up the Patna hill track then down to Altizourie and along the R Girvan, up to Spalandar loch and back to Straiton, downhill on the rough Patna hill track then up Bennan Hill, it's a cycle carry up but fun down.
I couldn't recommend this as a route, I had to fight through the trees from Spalander loch to the track, which was pretty rubbish, had fun exploring though and the view from Bennan hill is worth the walk up but hardly worth carrying the bike unless you're a bit of a masochist.
Back to The Buck for tea and scone around 2.30
