Stroll up, stroll up


Stroll up, stroll up

Despite the showers around a hundred folk attended a barbecue at Dalmorton House most of whom had strolled up from Straiton through Bennan Woods. Pictures of the proposed wind turbines were on show to demonstrate just what the devastating impact the turbines would have on views from this walk. A delicious lunch which included a whole roast lamb greeted the walkers with beer and wine to quench their thirst.
Our thanks to all those who helped organise the Stroll and to Whirly and Jock Marshall and family for their kind hospitality. Although not a fund-raising event over £600 was contributed to campaign funds.

Village ‘victory’ makes the press!

ayrshire post 001 (1)A  good article in the Ayrshire Post this week highlights our first Save Straiton for Scotland ‘success’ at Loch Bradan.  Well done everyone! Hopefully there will be several more to follow over the course of this campaign.

Unfortunately the article isn’t available online yet but if you don’t have the paper – you should be able to read the article if you click on the picture to the left – you may have to magnify it slightly if your eyesight is anything like mine!

Straiton Stroll – Sunday 11th August – 1pm

straiton stroll

**Please note – new time of 1pm**
Dust off your walking shoes (or your wellies), come along to the McCandlish Hall and enjoy a pleasant walk up to Dalmorton House via Bennan Woods. Keen walkers can climb to the top of Bennan Hill to get a great view of the local hills, across to Ailsa Craig and to the mountains on Arran.
There will be lifts for non-walkers so everyone can join in the barbecue, beer and summer refreshments. Donations to SSfS welcome.
