Run to Ayrshire

A short run yesterday to Ayrshire in weather conditions that could be described as "spring-like".

 Tarholm Bridge over the River Ayr. South of the village of Annbank the bridge took its name from a tar distilling works formally nearby. As one who toiled in the industry for many years it's obvious that the bridge deck & piers are not contemporary. I guess that the bridge once had a steel girder deck that was replaced with reinforced concrete when the bridge was widened.

The very picturesque Stair Parish Church

 Seems like a nice place for a pint!

The "Auld Brig" (old bridge) at Sorn. Build c1740 by the minister of the church in the background after one of his flock drowned fording the river on his way to worship.
