This morning a friend came along for the ride. We set off just after 7:30, the morning was dry though a little cloudy.
Along the cyclye path we find the stone circle. I've never seen this before as it's on a section of cycle path that I'd not been on, till today!
It's not actually very ancient - it was built along with the cycle path within the last couple of decades. The stone against which my bike is leaning has stylised ancient carvings on it.
Off then up the hills past autumn berries.
A at the top, chatting with the cows.
These fellows were across the road and came over to see what we were up to.
Shortly afterwards we pass this big beastie. Very impressive.
An upland view.
As we approch the reservoir my friend and I part company, she needs to head home whereas I carry on.
Beautiful autumn colours all around.
These are some particularly cute sheep!
The colours of the braken in the backgound match the details on this old trailer.
As I was taking the above photo of the leaf shadows on the wall I was aware of much clucking and sqwaking behind me...
... I looked over the fence to find these rather strange looking birds.
A view of Lochwinnoch, a pleasant little town to visit. We'll go there another day though, I turn back up the hill and head home.
Couldn't resist just this one last cow photo on the way!
