Outstanding views on Stirlingshire outing
Highs and lows of Duncanrig Ramblers’ trek
Duncanrig Rambling Club headed to Stirlingshire for two walks just north of Bearsden.
The high walk started at the Queens View car park with the alternate at Auchineden Mill as they trekked towards the Burncrooks Reservoir.
The high walkers left the car park and followed the path uphill towards the popular rock outcrop ‘The Whangie,’
The Whangie is a geological fault, 50 feet deep and 300 feet long, probably the result of glacial movement.
The Ramblers then carried on uphill to the top of Auchineden hill.
From the summit the group went downhill and joined the path that the alternate walkers had taken.
From the reservoir the Ramblers followed a very good path, part of the John Muir Way, which meanders across the countryside and a forest.
This is a new route which was funded by Forestry Commission Scotland, SportScotland and Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and is part of the Central Scotland Green Network project.
As there has been intensive forestry work done here the groups had a great view over to Loch Lomond and the hills to the north.
After leaving the forest the group followed a path down to the waiting coach at the junction with the A809.
The next walks are on Sunday, February 18 in the Sorn and Muirkirk area
