Day 52 Tuesday - Kilsyth to Drymen

Walking 9.15am to 5.15pm
Distance walked today 20 miles
Total distance walked 757 miles
Distance left 295 miles

After a good breakfast, Norrie dropped me off in Kilsyth where I met up with Reg and Geert. Norrie's generosity to me has been overwhelming and I'm very grateful.

Me and Norrie

We walked out of the town along the A803, passing through Queenzieburn on the way to Milton of Campsie where a very nice deli provided lunch to take away. Here, we joined the route of an old railway which has been hard surfaced in parts as a leisure trail. There's not a lot to be said about it. Parts of it were through woodland and parts between fields. Very easy going.

The trail diverted up to the A891 at Strathblane and then, about fifty yards down the A80, it went through a small housing development before continuing through more woodland. It was very muddy.

Near Dumgoyach Farm, we joined the West Highland Way and this took us along more of the old railway route. Reg and Geert then left to go to a B&B in Croftamie and I continued on to Easter Drumquhassle Farm, just outside Drymen, to a campsite. Torrential rain during the evening.
