Ram­blers en­joy the de­lights of Perthshire

Com­rie the des­ti­na­tion for club out­ing

East Kilbride News - - NEWS -

St Leonards Ram­blers headed north to the Vis­i­tor Cen­tre in Cri­eff for their com­fort stop be­fore mov­ing on to Com­rie, where both the High and Low walks would start and fin­ish.

It was a very cold morn­ing with a fore­cast of snow flur­ries dur­ing the day, so ev­ery­one was warmly dressed for the day ahead.

The High Walk­ers started their walk at the en­trance to the Fordie es­tate on the out­skirts of Com­rie.

They started walk­ing up­hill right away and even­tu­ally climbed over 1200 feet, pass­ing through Lag­gan Wood on their way to their lunch stop near The Mon­u­ment which can be seen for miles around.

Af­ter lunch, it was a fairly flat path to the end of their walk at Kin­dro­chet, where the coach was wait­ing for them.

The Low Walk­ers tack­led a seven mile, fairly flat but very muddy cir­cu­lar walk at the vil­lage of Dal­gin­ross, just south of Com­rie.

They started by fol­low­ing the eroded river path south­wards to Ruchil­side then walked east­wards, pass­ing the Auchin­gar­rich Wildlife Cen­tre be­fore fol­low­ing the path to Drum­mon­der­noch and con­tin­u­ing the cir­cle back to Dal­gin­ross.

Af­ter chang­ing out of their walk­ing boots, they all headed back to Cri­eff for a well de­served break be­fore driv­ing back home to East Kilbride.

The next walk will be in the south of Scot­land at the Devils Beef Tub near Mof­fat. The high walk is seven miles long with a climb of 1482 feet and the low walk is six miles long with a climb of 995 feet.
