We were walking into the low sun, so I just had to assume they weren't getting into any mischief! The sun didn't seem to bother them at all.
Though Moss did hear or see something of interest in the forest...not sure what as I couldn't see anything myself though! She loved all the smells that were around and didn't go too far away though I did keep a close eye on her in case she did get overly distracted by something she was on the trail of!
With the sun constantly in my eyes, I was starting to wish I'd done this route in reverse especially as for much of the time the sun was at just the right angle so the trees didn't provide any shade.
But finally the path changed direction and I could see again yay! We followed the trail round to the first of the little bridges. I would love to get a really nice photo of the bridges along this route, but it really isn't happening. I do like bridges, as do the dogs as they raced across it.
The trail is easy to follow as it is waymarked all the way around and it is a flat walk, while I may have liked to head for the hills it was a bit windy for me to be walking in and the glen provided a nice, sheltered alternative and the dogs certainly enjoyed themselves!
