Walk and more walk

Upper biglees waterfall

This picture hides a sad fact, two yards behind is a site where fires are lit regularly, last time someone chose to stoke it with old wheels and tyres so beside this lovely little waterfall is an ugly eyesore courtesy of the bonfire boys, nice one chaps!

The weather today wasn't promising for the bike and Anne had a notion to collect some berries for Sloe Gin. We know a good spot down by the River Ayr which would also give us a decent walk, so off we went, only trouble was there were no sloes. Normally there loads but we think this is maybe a bad year, don't know why but I suspect it may be due to early season weather. Anyway no sloe gin for us this christmas.

Later I had a drive to the beach for some photos and then a little bit of trail patrol up on Fairlie Moor passed Upper Biglees and Lower Biglees falls. Pleasant enough in the afternoon sun, see a very few photos here, took more but the rest are rubbish.

Up the minor (moor) road to Dalry from the main coast road (A78) just beside Fins restaurant and half way between Hunterston and Clydport roundabout. Park just after the first cattle grid 1/2 way to the top go off to the right 150m, very nice spot except for the fire debris.

Cheers, think I know where to go then. Will cycle from Irvine to there and check it out one day, soon hopefully.
