The bogs of Ladymuir

Was very tempted this morning to cross the Clyde to Dunoon into the forest but in the end decided to go to Muirsheil above Lochwinnoch and see if the ladymuir plantation would link back.

The Muirshiel track is great, I tried the west offshoot again but it still only goes out for a couple of kilometres.
I came along to Ladymuir farm and tried the path across to Muirsheil but it was rubbish, although I did cycle most of the way in bottom gear through bog, just as well it was relatively short.

Had an ice cream at the visitors centre while watching last years highlights of the Hen Harrier nesting.

It seems like you are having a problem finding decent new routes, i am going to try that other route at the dry stane dyke tomoorrow

It's just bad luck, some work out, others don't but it can still be good fun if you don't mind a bit of pushing, carrying, and bog trotting, it's just at the end there is no new route to show for the efforts.

Yeah, i know what you mean, i tried to find a link up from the Masts to Maybole route over Knowesie hill, turned out to far to awkwered to cycle, but i wont give up looking.

When you find one, it makes all the hard work worth it
