Auchinleck and Dumfries houses by MTB

Mine worker image at Barony pit head.

Graham and I went for an easy spin on the MTBs today.
He is just back from 2 weeks holday and didn't want anything too demanding so we pottered about around Auchinleck and Dumfries houses.
Auchinleck house has some interesting places in the grounds a lovely ravine (except for the farmers rubbish tip, shame on him!), several caves, some nice old bridges, and lots of snowdrops.
We spent quite a bit of time off the bikes looking about and taking photos before heading over to Dumfies house via Barony pit head, interesting place for a break with lots of information about the old pit.
The winding winding tower in place and it been nicely layed out telling the history of the mine and its workers.

On the way back we met a couple of other MTBers out from Cumnock doing a similar loop to ourselves, well actually doing quite a bit more on this trail.
