Kildoon Hill, Maybole - a chilly winter walk

Route: Kildoon Hill, Maybole

Date walked: 08/02/2021

Time taken: 2 hours

Distance: 9.75km

Ascent: 150m

Bringing my car in for MOT was a good occasion to walk this route. Weather was nice, but very crisp with a strong breeze.

I've done this walk in 2 hours, but I had my lunch in between.
Soon you're out of Maybole and away from the traffic and the landscape is quite beautiful, even in wintertime.
Most of the route you're walking on tarmac, except for the last part towards the monument on Kildoon Hill.

Terrain is good, area is quiet, landscape has a nice variety to enjoy. I'd love to hike it again on a more summery day.
