I had the pleasure of leading a linear walk with a twist with Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Ramblers on Wednesday. Meeting at Calercruix Railway Station, we took the train one stop up the line to Blackridge and then walked back along the cycle track that runs alongside the railway line.
Our walk took us past Hillend Reservoir, where we turned left (see extra photo) and made our way up towards Lilly Loch. Continuing around Annie's Hill, we completed our 15.5km back on the cycle track to Caldercruix.
Thankfully, the previous day's rain wasn't repeated and we had a mostly dry and bright day, albeit with a fairly stiff, cold wind in our faces for much of the day.
