Horse Rider

This evening, I am reporting on today’s hike which covered about eight miles between Priestland and Galston in East Ayrshire, about twenty-three miles south of Glasgow in the West of Scotland.


Weather was superb being dry with sunshine and temperature around 21 c/70 f.

The group encountered:

  • A variety of animals: sheep, cows, horses and a donkey.
  • Early summer wildflowers.
  • River Irvine.
  • Rolling landscape.
