A perfect winter day










Picked up Tom about 10am then headed over to Eglinton with bikes on the car.
The sky was clear as we set off in lovely sunshine meadering along quiet lanes to The Gleg Whittle in Kilmaurs, after coffee and cake we were off again along the minor roads to Dundonald, we climbed a little and got some nice views north to Ben Lomond, west to Arran and the Paps of Jura and the royal castle above the village. The intention was to have another cafe stop at the Industrial park but the coffee and cake from the Gleg Whittle was still fuelling us, so we just kept going.
By the time we got back to Eglinton we had enjoyed just over three hours cycling in lovely winter sunshine.

Got home at 2.30pm had a spot to eat and dashed out on the MTB for an hours spin before dark, lovely view over the beach as the sun was going down.
Managed a loop on Goldenberry then headed back home for tea.

Absolutely cracking day!

Milngavie through Mugdock is nice the railway line toward Drymen has annoying gates and stiles Garadhban
forest north of Drymen is nice, the descent from Conic hill down to Balmaha I've walked and is nice, the ascent from the north I dont know but imagine is hell if wet. Have walked some of the next bit to Rowardennan and seem to remember a lot of steps.
