Ramblers enjoy the delights of Perthshire
Comrie the destination for club outing
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.
