The next work on Smugglers Brae near Dunure was to top dress the steps with some stone chips, to give it a good walking surface. A hardy bunch of Pathminders braved the bitter weather on Saturday 11 February 2017, and bagged up and delivered 5 tonnes of chips to the bottom of the steps, some distance away.

By chance a group of ramblers were heading north and came down the newly completed steps just as we were finishing. Hope you enjoyed the scenery (and the steps!) The Travelling Dangleburys Walking Group. More work will be done on the Brae on the next few weeks to complete the job. And a  special thanks to Angus Craig, the local farmer, for helping out with his quad bike.
