Striding out in style
Walkers continue their trek along John MuirWay
It’s been a tough year for the Cambuslang Parish Church Walkers in which numbers have been down and the weather has been generally poor.
For the June walk, seven hardy walkers made their way along the latest section of the John Muir Way.
The first part of the walk was through leafy suburbs in what must be one of Edinburgh’s most affluent areas, with some members having a bit of fun deciding which house they would buy if their lottery ticket came up.
Soon the group left the suburbs and the route took the party along a country trail, which led, down to the shore of the Forth.
Walking into Dalmeny Park, the team watched groups of golfers teeing off and then had lunch on the beach.
Continuing round the coastal path the walkers walked under the iconic Forth Rail Bridge and then through the streets of South Queensferry. When their stride was interrupted by a customary Scottish downpour - the group had to take refuge in a cafe and indulge in tea with cream scones.
Once the rain cleared, the walkers continued to the little park where lunch had been enjoyed on the April walk where they finished up.
Anyone interested in the walking club can find more information on the Cambuslang Parish Church website at www. cambuslangparishchurch.org.uk/. Look under Organisations, then select ‘Walking Group’.
