Ram­blers head out to loch

Ayrshire Post - - Maybole And North Carrick -

On Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9, Ayr & Dis­trict Rambling Club will travel to Loch Doon for a 9.5- mile cir­cu­lar walk start­ing at the Garpel Bridge ( NX483: 984).

The route heads west along the forestry road, which even­tu­ally joins a moun­tain bike track that climbs grad­u­ally and then de­scends to the shore of Loch Bradan.

From here there is a sec­tion of road walk­ing down­hill to the Wa­ter­works, to join a track head­ing east. This is fol­lowed by open ground, which may be swampy in places, walk­ing par­al­lel to Loch Fin­las.

On reach­ing the weir, the fi­nal sec­tion of the walk is on a good track back to the Garpel Bridge.

For more de­tails, con­tact Louise Mur­doch on 01292 550968. To join the walk, please meet at the Mill­brae car park in Ayr at 8.50 am.
