Waterfalls and Downhill

I took a walk up Fairlie Glen this morning, the burn was going quite well so took a few pictures as I climbed beside the water, just off the path.
There are some lovely spots next to the burn invisible from the main path.
At the top of the path is the 30 feet falls, a little difficult to get to these days due to errosion and fallen trees.
As I sauntered through Kelburn I discovered a line for a downhill route and cleared it a bit as I went, the lower bit was a little overgrown by rhododendron but there was another line.

Came home for a spot of lunch then cycled up to Kelburn to give the downhill a go, the bottom bit was good but the top was a bit tame.
I may have another go at clearing the rhodies to improve things, it could open up a worthwhile Largs/Kelburn figure of eight loop.

View the falls pictures here with a little gory ending.

Like the photos, at first i thought that you had found the remains of a stone age mountain biker

Just the remain of a pheasant, there was also a skull which I think was a fox.
All those dead things about, hope it's not a big bad wood.
