On the right path

Rutherglen Reformer - - News from the Pews - Jonathan Ged­des

St Brides Church paris­hon­ers had the chance to walk this way re­cently.

They were tak­ing part in their monthly Parish walk, their 43rd since the walk­ing club first formed three and a half years ago.

This time the group headed up to Com­rie, near Perthshire, and a good time was had by the whole group as they en­joyed the lo­cal scenery.

The group’s Gerry Daly said: “We never know how many will turn up for the walks, it can be any­thing from about 15 to 35.

“The walks are al­ways var­ied from sim­ple wood­land walks to quite hilly and wild walks on open moor­land.

“In the past we’ve done some of the West High­land Way, walked Glen Tilt near Blair Atholl and we’ve done the Grey Mare’s Tail near Mof­fat.

“Last Satur­day’s walk was to the Devil’s Caul­dron and the Melville Mon­u­ment just to the north of Com­rie. 21 peo­ple at­tended in­clud­ing three chil­dren.

“It was about five miles with a short steep climb up to the mon­u­ment where we were treated to some good views.

“The Devil’s Caul­dron con­sists of a steep gorge with wa­ter­falls and deep pools.

“Most of the walk was through wood­land with some quite muddy paths and it was very easy.

We al­ways head for some re­lax­ing es­tab­lish­ment at the end of our walks and on this oc­ca­sion we found an ex­cel­lent pub in Cri­eff where we had a drink in the gar­den.”
