Tillicoultry – Castle Campbell Circuit

Sunday 14th February     Leader: John Hutcheson

This walk led by John Hutcheson had everything we love on our SRC jaunts.  History, sunshine, snow, tricky descent and good company.    Great to see all today’s team take on some challenging conditions……other than John Baillie who had pulled a muscle and accompanied by Mary and Evie…. took the shorter version.

Thanks to Mike and Denis for photos

A drizzly day perhaps , however, a picturesque walk of fine river views, plane landings and the history of owners of Cammo Estate,…made this first well led walk of Karlyn’s an interesting start to joining our team of excellent leaders.

STRATHCLYDE PARK – RIVER CLYDE – DALZIEL ESTATE

Sunday 31st January           Leader: Denis Taylor

No better river to follow than the Clyde on a dry, bright, crisp morning as it flowed westwards.  The delight of the day being the sight and sound of a Whooper Swan flying 20 feet above us and landing at Baron’s Haugh.

We were also pleased to see Agnes’s progress as she exercised round the loch.
