Hiking group crossing water.

This evening, I am reporting on today’s small group hike across an elevated section of rugged landscape about thirty miles West of Glasgow in S.W. Scotland. Although temperature was relatively mild (for time of year) the group encountered persistent rain the effects of which are evident in the photographs.

The route covered about seven miles, passing between Drumfrochar and Wemyss Bay. Some of the higher elevations in the region reach about fifteen hundred feet. This location is bordered by the River Clyde where it is known as the Firth of Clyde.

As will be evident from the images below, the group encountered inquisitive sheep, horses,rugged landscapes, burns (streams), reservoirs and a loch,a curious well built by the military during WW1 (1915) and a trout fishery.

Part of group during a period of reasonable visibility.

Well built by top Scottish regiment, the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders (6th Battalion) during 1915.
