A picturesque walk
St Bride’s Parish Church enjoyed another picturesque walk as they trekked around St Mary’s Loch and White Coomb.
The weather was clear and bright for the group, which consisted of 31 walkers and three dogs, when they set off on Saturday, August 9.
Six members had elected to climb White Coomb via the Grey Mare’s Tail and Loch Skeen before heading for the Black Bull pub in Moffat where they had arranged to meet prior to the walk. Three managed to reach the top of White Comb.
The remaining 25 headed for St Mary’s Loch where they followed the shoreline, taking them to Yarrow Water, which is the outflow from the loch.
The group then followed the Southern Upland way for another three quarters of a mile to reach Dryhope Tower.
Although the walk took longer than usual, the trek was enjoyed by all.
The walkers even managed to sample some cherries from cherry trees.
