Today, I joined a small group hike centred on Linlithgow and the Forth & Clyde Canal which is a route located about eighteen miles west of Edinburgh in Scotland.
Weather was sunny but with a chill in the air.
The route was circular covering about six miles in course of which we encountered a very wide and diverse range of sites, flora, bird life, early industrial engineering, rare sheep, a former royal palace, canal boats, a 16th century battle site, ruined 12th century priory and unusual dogs.
