The morning was bright and dry, and with no real rain for nearly a fortnight, the prospect of dry underfoot conditions made for a pleasant change. We weren’t to be disappointed!Setting off from Failford we, as a group, followed the River Ayr Walk up through the gorge until the access to Peden’s Pulpit. Jimmy, Kenny R and Gus decided to take a look, but the rest of us, having seen it before, continued up the path. There were plenty of bluebells on display, and as some paused to take pictures or just to take stock, the group got scattered well before the steps to the lower riverside path were reached. Peter and Allan stayed high whilst the rest went low and the twosome took their time awaiting the arrival of Peden’s Posse.

FRT was taken in the Black Bull in Mauchline, a very agreeable hostelry.
