Happy Hikers, Scotland

This afternoon, I am posting information and images of yesterday’s small group hike in South Lanarkshire, S.W.Scotland.

The route focused on the valley of the River Avon between Larkhall and Hamilton, including Chatelherault Country Park. The weather was glorious with temperatures in high 20s centigrade.

The images below illustrate the pleasant, green landscape with varieties of flora and the River Avon.

Lanarkshire has a long history of heavy industry. Here is a park dedicated to the memory of Robert Smillie, an early trade unionist and co-founder of the Labour Party who was employed in coal mines during his early years.
