Mr and Mrs happy walk leaders.
Yesterday on a glorious warm sunny day Cunninghame ramblers headed to Loch Lomond to climb Conic Hill near to Balmaha. 11 of us set off from the local car park firstly on the road until we arrived at the hamlet of Milton of Buchanan where we took the track up through the forest until we reached the West Highland Way. Many walkers were out enjoying the sunshine as we headed up the side of Conic Hill where we were rewarded for our efforts with most magnificent views of the loch and all the surrounding mountains. After a lunch stop we had a very steep descent back down to Balmaha where the leaders were thanked by everyone for an excellent 7 mile walk taken in the most perfect conditions. What a beautiful country we are fortunate enough to live in.
