Ram­blers hot­foot it to Len­dal­foot

East Kilbride News - - CLUB NEWS -

St Leonards Ram­bling Club headed to South Ayr­shire re­cently.

Mem­bers stopped off at the Dowhill Farm shop for cof­fee and a com­fort stop be­fore head­ing down to the start of their ex­cur­sions.

The low walk­ers started their route at Pin­wherry and fol­lowed the River St­in­char as far as Col­monell, where they stopped for a 30-minute lunch break.

When they moved off again, the group crossed the river and passed through the vil­lage be­fore join­ing a sin­gle track road to the end of the walk at Len­dal­foot.

In to­tal, mem­bers cov­ered a dis­tance of 7.5 miles.

The high walk­ers started their walk at Six­pence and fol­lowed a longer and steeper path to Col­monell where they also stopped for lunch.

The sec­ond half of their out­ing was the same route as the low walk­ers had pre­vi­ously taken.

Af­ter chang­ing out of their walk­ing boots, the ram­blers spent an hour in Gir­van en­joy­ing re­fresh­ments dur­ing their so­cial stop.

The next walk will be in Fife at Lower Largo. The low walk is 7.5 miles, climb­ing 200ft, and the high walk is 9.5 miles, climb­ing 939 ft.
