The leader.
Saturday December 7th Cunninghame ramblers organised a different type of day out by taking the group on a visit to Glasgows once infamous Gorbals area. 14 of us met outside Central Station on a cloudy but dry morning to be briefed by our leader on the various places we hoped to visit today. I will not go into all the details of our walk, I will leave that to the above photos suffice to say we had a great day out full of our leaders colourful storys of life in the Gorbals back in its heyday.Thanks again to her for leading a rather unusual but interesting day out.
