    The final South West and Northern Ireland meeting of the year will take place in Ayrshire on 1st October.

    In the morning we will visit Blackthorn Salt in the Port of Ayr and hear how their timber tower, packed with blackthorn, is used to produce salt for domestic purposes.

    Archie McConnel will also be on hand to describe how the salt tower was constructed and the timber used. We will go inside the tower and up to the top where the views are fabulous. 

    In the afternoon we be visiting Shewalton Wood, a Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT) Greenspace Reserve by Irvine. 

    We will be guided round by Gill Smart, SWT Reserve Manager for Ayrshire and Renfrewshire. This wet woodland, has miles of made paths and typical urban fringe issues.
