Milngavie-Drymen (12 miles)

Excellent first day weather on the walk from Milngavie to Drymen. Waking up to blue skies this morning in Glasgow, we can only hope our good fortune continues.

The morning consisted of adjusting bag straps and removing layers, whilst we ambled along well sign-posted paths.

After our first glimpse of a distant snow-capped peak, a cool breeze soon dictated we layer up as we head across the open, low-lying fields. Deer, rabbits, sheep and cows can all be ticked off in our I-spy checklist! As well as the Glengoyne Distillery, where we unfortunately passed up on the opportunity of a whiskey tour, as we had missed the start.

Lunch came soon after Glengoyne at the Beech Tree Inn, where we decided to treat ourselves on our first day. The pygmy goats and rabbits in the garden provided added entertainment, before the Way beckoned us on.

The afternoon section passed quickly, following easy trails along an old railway line and finally roads into Drymen. The road section felt longer than anticipated, but a cosy room in our B&B and dinner at the Drymen Pottery will hopefully set aside any aches, ready to go again tomorrow morning!
