Change of plan due to snow

Blaeloch hill west cairn

I'd thought today would be cold still and clear again so planned to go across the wild side of Fairlie moor to Bradshaw ruin then down to Fairlie, but when I got over Glentane the sky was dull that way so changed my mind, instead pushed the bike up into Kaim quarry for the full downhill.
In the quarry light snow began falling so didn't hang about, just flew down to the coast road then headed for Goldenberry hoping it would pass over.
Did a loop on Goldenberry and headed home for lunch after 2 hours on the bike.

PM the snow shower was well away so took a little stroll near home looking for trails, found one possibility through a small bit of woodland but it's not great, nothing technical in it at all.

We got our first snow of the year, so heded out for a while, got bnack just before the snow came on heavy.

The old railway line route is a right mess, either the farmer or the council have cut back all the trees, which is good, but they did it when the ground was wet, and the tire tracks are about a foor deep.

Plus the track on the other side of the Burns Herotage Park is sealed off, so i wont be using that bit for a while

I had a walk along there on Saturday and it wasn't very wonderful, where they are working near the Burns centre there is a puddle of sewage, not nice.
As you say won't be heading that way again for a while.
