There are a few well marked walking
routes around the scenic village of
Straiton that is situated about 15 miles
southeast of Ayr.
This walk was from the village to the
Monument and back. That walk can be
extended around the hills and back to the
village from the other side.
There had been a frost the previous
night so there was hardly a cloud in the
sky. At about 1400 hours, it was getting
warm enough for only light clothing. The
jacket was only needed right at the top
where there was a cool breeze.
Below is Straiton Church with the
Monument in the distance. Large
