Lochs Skelloch,Bradan and the Stinchar Falls

It's the 23rd of October and the weather's not so nice.
Undeterred,i'm taking a run up the Straiton Road for a look at Loch Bradan just over the county border in South Ayrshire.
Stinchar Bridge and falls is my first stop.Not many tourists about now.Apart from a couple of forestry vans and two logging lorries,the only other vehicle i encountered up here was a farmer transporting sheep.
After the falls i head east on the narrow tarmac road to the Water of Girvan.
Walking boots on i head upwards to a scenic viewpoint at a spot called Pedens Hut.
Here i get to see the Water of Girvan running into Loch Skelloch,beyond that the western edge of Loch Bradan,and to the right the bulk of Loch Bradan.

Panorama of Lochs Bradan and Skelloch on

Time to try and get a decent panorama.
After a while,and a couple of light drizzly showers i headed back to the car.
Taking a run up to Balloch Lodge and over to the dam on Loch Bradan i decided to call it a day.
Apparently this is a forest drive to take you over to Lochs Riecawr and Doon and emerge near Dalmellington on the A713,so that's for another day.
