The Linn

Seamill shore and Arran

A dry Saturday morning yipee, a quick phone check with Graham and then we were out on the mountain bikes straight up to Busbie windfarm. Fabulous views up there across West Kilbride over the Cumbrie Islands to Bute and Arran. The new windfarm roads makes going easy for a while then a short push got us to the quad track and new pond behind Blackshaw Hill. A short road stretch then up through Crosbie, Graham was in front and lead us through a new track along Glentane. It was a bit of a scooter push at times but it was quite firm, a little bit of work on it and it could be quite nice. From the Fairlie moor road we cycled the lovely muddy/wet rough track that leads eventually to a short singletrack through a burn crossing to the beautiful Fairlie Glen trail down by Fairlie Caastle ending up at the Mudhook Inn for some lunch before a leisurely cycle back along the Sustrans cycleway (trail map here).

As it was reasonable weather late afternoon, Anne and I drove over to Dalry for a walk in Blair and Dalry Linn. Blair was nice as always although the snowdrops are past thier best. The Blair walk is short so we went across town to view the linn. The start of the Linn path was very muddy but we persevered, it was worth it, there was enough water in the burn for a good display at the waterfalls, I shot a bit of video to add to the MTB outing clips of the morning.
