Trail rerouting

Recently I got some info on a walking track along the river Ayr starting near Muirkirk so thought I'd go over there and see how it was developing.
Went along the railway toward Glenbuck but the track is far from finished so ended up on the road and then at Glenbuck discovered the open cast mine has gobbled up part of the Long Douglas trail so ended up carrying the bike 1.5km up to the windfarm .

I'll need to alter the description showing a reroute, trouble is the reroute goes past a rather aggressive farmer, so its a case of "don't go alone" although there is another alternative which I took today but is a 1km push.

Nice outing even so.

We seem to be losing a load of trails of late

All due to open cast work, keeps someone in a job I suppose, bit of a pig for the MTB though. Ah well there's plenty out there all you need to do is find them.
Doctored up a little loop on Law hill yesterday, and cycled it again today, OK for a change but it's straight uphill out my door so is a tough start.

No more excitement on the beach?
