Passing time by the River Ayr

MTB video Largs to West Kilbride

Car service day today down in Ayr, Anne and I killed the time walking from Auchincruive around the loop in the river. Its lovely now (apart from the Annbank litter track!) its possible to get a 2 hour walk with hardly any time on road.
I like the Auchincruive section at the start the best there seems to be more chance of seeing some wildlife in the mile stretch upriver from Oswald bridge.
As for Annbank I'd love to take all the litter from the trail and dump it in a pile in the middle of the village, although most of the inhabitants probably wouldn't notice the difference.

Got back about 2pm and decided to get out on the MTB over Goldenberry and along to Kelburn for a spot of Kelburn and Fairlie Glen downhill. The effort set me up nicely to enjoy a couple of glasses of wine with dinner, love the way it goes down when I'm a little dehydrated although its a fine line between enjoyment and headache so now I'm going onto the coffee.

I am glad that you enjoyed some of the lovely countryside surrounding Annbank. I am also ashamed at the amount of litter in the woodlands immediately adjacent to the village. However I take exception to your comments of dumping such waste in the village and quote "most of the inhabitants probably wouldn't notice the difference".
Fly dumping is a common problem all over Scotland and not pecular to Annbank. It is also caused by a tiny minority of thoughtless and selfish people.
Believe it or not there are people with university education who live in Annbank and many people who care about our beautiful countryside. I suggest you bring a bin bag next time you visit and do something positive for the environment.

Pleased to hear it bugs you as much as me. Pity the more informed residents don't do something about it. Believe me I've done a fair amount of self clearing but just can't seem to get on top of it.
Even reported some areas to the council, but they don't do anything unless its by the roadside and passed me on to SEPA who can't do anything unless they can get someone to blame.
So you are quite right I better keep a bin bag (or twenty) handy next time time I'm down Annebank way.
