17.8km | ascent 238m | descent 241m
Easter Drumquhassle farm, £5 to camp
I took the train from London to Glasgow
then changed to a local train to Milngavie and the start of the West Highland Way
The first few kilometres were delightful through woodland
Scotland’s Great Trails official thimble way mark
Then the terrain changed with views of the Strathblane hills and Dumgoyne (on the left)
Dumgoyne peeking out beyond the farm and trees
This looked terrific but it was unfortunately closed by the time I arrived
One of the best signs you can come across when hiking!
I’ll always be a tourist in the UK and couldn’t help but take a photo of this cute little post box!
Home for the night in my Big Agnes Copper Spur UL1 in a field at Easter Drumquhassle Farm
