Stage 3 was upon us. Highlights included a teensy misunderstanding about exactly which car park I’d arrived (early) in, lots of tramping along the cycle path (past the volcanic plug of Dunglass) followed by lots of tramping along the canal towpath, a visit to Barhill Fort and a wee tramp along the Antonine Wall, snowdrops, and a lovely Spring-like day that actually had us complaining about the heat once or twice! There was a wee bit of Kirkintilloch that wasnae so nice.
A few pics (as much as I’m enjoying this LDP, there’s just not much that’s exciting, or particularly write-worthy about it):
old railway bridge at Milton of Campsie
a less salubrious stretch through Kirkintilloch
heron along the tow path
swans along the tow path
although I had a difficult time imagining it, apparently there used to be a rather significant hill fort here
the ditch along the Antonine Wall; our stopping point in the distance
For the next stage, we’ll park in Croy, walk to Falkirk, then take the train back to Croy. I’ll meet you in Car Park 1. I mean 2. No, wait. Which one? Oh, hell, the same place I was the last time!
