Today I am reporting on a recent small group hikeĀ along a route covering seven miles between Lanark and Cleghorn Bridge. This location is about twenty-eight miles S.E. of Glasgow in the west of Scotland The route covered a rural landscape with extensive range of trees and vegetation. Autumnal fruits such as elderberries and blueberries were encountered plus fungi.

Gilnockie Tower in the Scottish Borders region is the only survivor from around 60-80 stone or wooden towers of similar design in the region of Eskdale, Ewesdale and Liddesdale. The Tower dates from the 16th century andĀ is situated on the west bank of the River Esk. The Tower is known as the Clan Armstrong Centre.

Today, we transferred from Kyleakin on Isle of Skye to Glasgow Airport via Armadale, Mallaig, Glenfinnan, Fort William and Glencoe.
