A wee stroll with the masses up the track off the Sherriffmuir road. Lots of bagged dogshit on the way. Who are these people ?
Lovely sunny day and everyone was enjoying themselves, apart from a solitary sullen-looking young lad at the back of a family group - who had obviously been prized from his PSn/XBox for this family "jaunt" in the sunshine.
A braw path took us to the top and a fairly impressive Beacon on top of the summit cairn that had been filled wi stanes.
There was also a recently renovated fine memorial to the Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders to mark their "integration" along with all the other famous scottish regiments into the Royal Regiment of Scotland. Beautiful memorial. The amalgamation must've saved the Army a fortune, not having all these different tartans and accessories to pay for - but what a loss of heritage !
Tony took us down a different route away from the madding crowds, so that we could get a better view to the north.
A fine wee walk in the lowlands for a change.
