Burncrooks Reservoir

Our group enjoyed a 6 mile route around Burncrooks Reservoir in the Kilpatrick hills, north of Glasgow. The walk started outside the Edenmill Farm Shop, Stockiemuir Road, Blanefield  north of Bearsden. The Edenmill Cafe provided welcome refreshment after our walk at the Reservoir.


25 July

A chance to explore some hidden corners in and around Biggar. Our walk started from the Corn Exchange and covered about 4 miles, around the periphery of Biggar with lovely views of the Southern Uplands and Tinto Hill from Bizzy Berry hill.  We finish with lunch at the newly refurbished Gillespie Community Centre cafe.  After lunch a walk up and down Biggar High Street revealed a variety of independent shops including the excellent ice cream shop!
