Forth and Clyde canal

Clydebank bicycle

Yesterday Tom and I got out on the bikes for a bit, just a short outing Eglinton to Dundonald, a nice little route with a coffee stop at Dundonald Castle visitor centre.
Its getting near the season end for this coffe stop the castle and centre close at the end of October until the beginning of April.
Back home I decided to fill the nice sunny afternoon with a bit more cycling so I took myself up over Fairle moor to work up a bit of a sweat, it goes up to 1000ft and has a cracking view over the Clyde to Arran.

Today was another nice and warm and sunny day good enough for a bit more cycling.
Anne and I put the bikes on the car and went up to Erskine to cycle into the city (Glasgow) along the canal to Port Dundas stopping off for a pub lunch at Lock 27.
The last time we were along the canal it was in 2000 during the foot and mouth outbreak when the coutryside was out of bounds, at that time the canal was in quite a sad state now though its generally wonderful a really nice linear park all the way into town (and back).
