Stewarton and Dunlop

Dunlop church

Tom and I arranged a short road cycle outing today starting at Dalry, to Dunlop via Stewarton giving the opertunity for coffee and cake at the Coffee Pot cafe in Stewarton.
The cafe stop was a nice break from the cold wind, but the time came to get on our way up to Dunlop where finally we turned away from the breeze, past Dunlop Church pictured above, and south along one of the loveliest lanes in Ayrshire looking out over the Garnock Valley, north to Ben Lomond, even further to Ben More and south to Ailsa Craig.
It felt a good cycling with the breeze behind us and with some good downhills on the way back to Dalry, a very nice few hours out on the bikes.

Route here.

Some pictures of the area here.

LOL, I like the way that you say, a short bike ride, a few hours aint a short run.

The walkway from the forest down to Fisherton is now a nightmare, the farmer seems to be building a new road right across it, and the fences are either knocked down, or leaning into the walkway.

Took your advice, and just cycled down the outside of it, that is the way to go.

Very sensible, no sence in risking life and limb just to keep some farmer happy.
