The roads were snowy in the aftermath of Arwen. Also GordonC was busy on domestics, fixing his daughters fence. So it was a walk around the block for Harvey this week. Followed part of the Orbital trail starting at the Lawsondale wood.

Had to make a bit of a diversion along the Brodiach road to the nearest doggy poop box before heading up past Taylors and round the back of Kinmundy House. A big beech had fallen on to the dyke at the back of the house, but the Buddist folk had cleared the underside of the tree to gain access to one of their buildings.. Had a wee news with one of the adherants then continued up the road to South Craigston. There were sheep in the field I wanted to cross, so had to detour through the next field. The field beyond has sheep in it too, but luckily they were away down at the bottom. Made it to the muddy track beside Meadowlands and thence to the road, then up to the golf course. There was a bit of tree armageddon caused by Arwen at the back of the 5th Tee and a wee detour was necessary. After that, it was nae bother round the back of Broadshade down to the Skene road.
