Walk­ing group put best foot for­ward

Weather is kind for trip to Luss and Loch Lomond

Rutherglen Reformer - - Church News -

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.
