Castle Semple and Glentane

Busbie Muir Windfarm

Surprise surprise there wasn't much wind and it wasn't raining this morning!!
The sky didn't look to promising though so we went along to Parkhill Wood at Castle Semple for a walk.
The Lochside path was flooded so we were forced to retrace our steps up to the old railway Sustrans track.
It was lovely in the wood, the clouds had mostly blown away and the sun was streaming through the autumn leaves.
Afterwards we went along to the RSPB visitor centre just round the corner from Castle Semple hoping to see some little birds on the feeders but they were all in hiding except for one little robin who stuck around for about 5 seconds.
We had a coffee, looked around the shop then headed home.
It was still reasonable weather so I set off over Glentane for a much needed thrill on the MTB and to do a spot of video, got back about 3.30pm 45minutes before the rain set in.
Graham turned up for a passing visit, he'd been up through the windfarm, unfortunately he also got caught in the rain!

This loop is only about an hour, a quick dash out on the MTB if there is a break in the weather or last ditch outing of the day.
