Today Saturday June 9th I travelled with the Right Honourable Secretary to the lovely village of St John's Town of Dalry in Dunfries and Galloway to recce a walk for the different rambling groups we are both associated with. On a cloudy mild morning we walked up the side of the Water of Ken passing Glenlee Power station to Dunveoch Hill where we found a track round it before joining part of the Southern Upland Way to Waterside Hill where we had wonderful views back to the village and beyond. Not giving away too many details as this will be a walk for Ayr and District Ramblers and also my mother group Wigtownshire in the future possibly on the winter programme as it is a gentlle "C+" 8 mile route suitable for all members.
