Walking group put best foot forward
Weather is kind for trip to Luss and Loch Lomond
Some of Cambuslang Parish Church’s walking group recently took the high road and some of them took the low road.
The group were off to Luss, on the western bank of Loch Lomond, on their latest trip.
The forecast was for showers so everyone was well prepared with all their waterproof gear.
The whole party set off from the car park together. However, after crossing the footbridge over the main road the group split up.
Those who chose the low road still had a bit of a hill to climb, as the first part of the route was up a steep road high above Luss Water.
The first objective was a farm at Edentaggart, where the walkers had to skirt the sheep farm across a wet and boggy ground.
From here the walkers followed an old drover’s road.
This group stopped short of the old Sheilings where a well earned lunch break was taken.
After lunch this group retraced their steps back to the car park.
Those who chose the high road had a hard climb first passing over Creag an t -ellich before continuing on to the top of Beinn Dubh.
From here the route circled round to Corre na h Eanachan, which was the highest point of the day at 2,135 feet.
The route continued along the ridge of Mid Hill before a steep descent took the party back down to the farm road then back down to the car park.
Both groups had enjoyed their walks despite the occasional showers and a short refreshment stop at Luss set everyone up for the journey home.
