A visit to Dundonald

Dundonald Castle

Yesterday was spent car shopping with my daughter but managed a 1 1/2 hour walk on Crosbie moor late PM trail hunting, found a couple of quad tracks but nothing great.

Today Tom and I had a cycle outing from Eglinton to Dundonald following some quiet road round by Knockintiber, Crosshouse and Symington.
The castle tea room is open for the summer, we sat out below the castle in lovely sunshine for our lunch stop before heading back to Eglinton park through Dreghorn and Peirston.
The sun was nice but the air temperature didn't rise above 7degc, so it was.. ehrr.. refreshing!

Got back about 2.30, it was still bright so decided to do a MTB loop, usual stuff, Glentane, Kaim downhill, and Goldenberry, got back at 4.45 in good time for tea.
I timed the lower downhill at 10.5 minutes, although it does have a couple of short climbs.
One of these days I'll remember to time the whole thing from the top of Kaim down to the road.
