A Pleasant walk to start the year: Hunterston Peninsula

This picturesque and easy-going 10km circuit follows part of the Ayrshire Coastal path and was a lovely way to start the year’s adventures. Sarah had bought herself a new pair of Salomon walking boots so these needed tried out before we tackle anything bigger later in the year. 349 more words
