Walk on the wild side

Rutherglen Reformer - - News From The Pews -

St Bride’s Church mem­bers re­cently com­pleted their latest walk.

The group tack­led a six mile cir­cuit and en­joyed a good time.

The group’s Gerry Daly said:“We com­pleted our 44th walk on Septem­ber 19.

“It was a six mile cir­cuit in the Camp­sies tak­ing in Cort-ma Law and Lecket Hill.

“A steep climb on a grassy path to the top of the wide ridge was fol­lowed by a walk along the ridge.

“On the ridge the paths were a bit rougher and some­times boggy although, for about one kilo­me­tre, we had to ne­go­ti­ate boggy fea­ture­less moor­land with­out a path.

“Only eleven turned up for this out­ing which is our low­est in a long time, so we de­cided we were the first eleven.

“The weather was kind - we started off in a bit of fog and cloud but we soon climbed above this to wit­ness a sea of white cloud be­low and blue skies above.

“Most walk­ers yearn for this ex­pe­ri­ence.

“Whilst the low cloud to the south blocked out Glas­gow we were treated to some amaz­ing views of the High­lands to the north and when the cloud fi­nally dis­persed we could see Tinto Hill and the South­ern Up­lands to the south.

“All-in-all it was a bril­liant day en­joyed by all from a six-year-old to a 76 year old. and you don’t get bet­ter than that.”
