Saints take high road

East Kilbride News - - CLUB NEWS -

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
