Wee Christmas Eve stroll - an oft repeated walk over the last fifty years or so
Drove up to car park at Overtoun House above Milton
Along the moorland path below the crags and then up and back along the edge of the crags
Back down by the "Giant's Steps" to Overtoun

:lol:

I was out walking locally with a few mates today, was trying to persuade them to head for the Whangie but they fancied Dumgoyne hill. Was too misty when we got there so we just did a few miles of the WHW instead - path's like an ice rink! Was still nice day for being out though :) .
