Overview

We meet at De Waldens Garden Centre on Ayr Road, Kilmarnock where there is adequate parking available. There are also toilets available and we will, if wanted, have coffee here on our return.

We leave the car park and walk to the Caprington Golf Club entrance. The walk continues along a path which takes us into the Caprington Estate. During the recce the path was muddy and there were a few branches to negotiate underfoot but nothing too challenging. At the end of this path we arrive in the Estate and walk towards the Big House and beyond then turn and make our way back. There was a lovely display of snowdrops during the recce so finger crossed we will be lucky enough to see them.
