A sunny walk to Ayr










A lovely bright, clear, cold day today, Anne and I decided on a walk from Troon to Ayr, we discovered this walk a few years back during foot and mouth when walking was limited.
It starts at Troon railway station goes along the front with return by train from Ayr, after lunch of course.
There is always the pleasure of a spot of shopping in Ayr if the fancy takes you, we bought a couple of cheap computer games, and a book on route through the town.

Got back about 3pm and because it was so nice I dashed out on the mountain bike over Glentane, down the lower Fairlie moor section and over Goldenberry getting back about 5.30 just as tea was being served, now that's what I call good timing!

Thanks for that. I was born in Troon, but the flight from Ottawa makes it too far for a day's walk. ;-)

Yes, I've been back a few times. We did a house-swap with a family in Alloway a couple of summers ago, and I was in Edinburgh at a conference for a week and a bit last May.
