This cycle outing was an
Ayrshire CTC organised event
starting from Drymen village
square.
We left east and crossed the A811 (200m right) onto the minor road to Kilearn continuing east on the
A875 and B818 to Fintry where we had coffee in the sports club, a little way along the B822.

From Fintry we climbed up to Carron resv on the
B818 taking the minor road left just at the dam,
toward Stirling. The view back to Fintry is lovely
as is the view over the Forth Valley .

By keeping left on the minor roads we minimised
the time on the A811 and turned of ASAP into
Gargunnock using the rough farm lanes past
Watson house to keep away from the main road.
The minor road below Gargunnock hills
was used crossing the B822 on route to
Balfron.
We returned to Drymen on the A811
which we joined three kilometres east of
Drymen.
