Pisa Florence and Kaim hill

For our wedding anniversary my wife and I went off to Pisa and Florence for two nights, giving us a chance to view the leaning tower on the first day and a full day in Florence the next. It was a little grey in Pisa but soon brightened up and Florence is certainly a beautiful city, took lots of pictures and will probably post some on my web site soon.
Got back today at 2pm and the sun was splitting the skies so jumped on the MTB and took a ride up Glentain, Kaim quarry Goldenberry and the beach. At the top of Kaim quarry I stopped to admire the view over Arran, the Cumbreas and Largs and thought to myself that on this warm sunny afternoon this spot is every bit as nice as Florence but perhaps not quite so romantic.

Looks like you had a good time, and thanks for all the info on the various trails, i am now getting a bit ambitious.

Had an idea to link most of them together into a sort of super trail

If you go out past Ayr college along the river, under the A77
along Mainholm to Auchincruive up to Annebank along the river and back its a good loop also as far as Stair. Its sheltered so can be done on those showery blustery days not suitable for Carrick hills.
