Abandoned plans and a forgotten bag

Sluice near Stair

Graham had given me an invitation to MTB down in the lake district, he works down there during the week and I had intended to join him if the weather forecast looked OK, it didn't so I phoned Thursday to call off.
Today (Sunday) started dull and a little wet but we set off for a River Ayr MTB outing hoping to check out if more of the river Ayr Way had been layed down between Stair and Ayr.
Starting at Auchincruive we cycled up the riverside to Stair, through the Mauchline gorge to Auchinleck house and back to Stair Inn for a spot of lunch.
After leaving Stair along the River Walk we'd gone 20minutes when I realised I'd left my bag with the car keys at Stair Inn, curses!... more curses!.... back to Stair we went, the bag was where I'd left it but the end result was a change of route so we didn't get to see if the River Way to Wallaces Seat had been layed down, an excuse for going back some other day!

Some photos here.

the new section from Annbank to Wallaces seat is finished, maybe needs a bit more tweeking, but its a great route, was up there today.

Also found a trail done past the Burns Wallace monument, never managed to get along the whole thing, but got as far as the farm

I'm looking forward to getting along the new track soon, pity we missed out on this outing.

They have laid gravel all the way to the Old Bridge at Annbank, although you still have those nightmare stairs at Wallace's Seat
