A pic­turesque walk

Rutherglen Reformer - - News From The Pews -

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.
