Saints take high road
St Leonard’s Rambling Club set off from the John Wright Sports Centre to head north towards Perth and Kinross.
Both the high and low walks were from Bridge of Cally to Blairgowrie; the high walkers including a two-mile detour.
The weather was great for the time of year and the first half of the walk saw many ramblers donning sunglasses, following the morning coffee stop in Blaigowrie.
One of the largest towns in Perthshire, Blairgowrie sits to the north of the city of Perth on the banks of the River Ericht.
It is also the main start point for the 60-mile circular Cateran Trail that walkers can follow around the historic drove roads used by cattle rustlers.
The club’s walks followed this well-marked Cateran Trail, the scenery was beautiful and the terrain varied.
Unfortunately, the rain in recent weeks had left much of the trail muddy so there was some work to do to avoid the worst of this.
There was time for a wellearned rest in Blairgowrie before the journey back to East Kilbride.
The next walk is this Saturday in the Trossachs area, starting at Loch Lubnaig and visitors are welcome if there are seats on the coach.
Good effort St Leonard’s Rambling Club members during their visit to Blairgowrie
