Hill walking in Leadhills

I was walking in Leadhils on Thursday here are the photos I took  today  This was was the first for 3 week by this group, we had a good turn out of 10 walkers,
Our walk to day was in Leadhills, Priests Pool, it was 12 miles, good paths, misty start, not too cold
Some steep parts that had us panting  


Here is a map of our route




Ready for our walk




Bright start to the walk but you can see the mist coming down the hills

There are many old rusty sheds in this area, I have taken a few today


Before the mist came down



Rust in peace


Looking to Leadhills, its a wee bit misty

Now its getting misty




Shooting butt in the foreground


The paths were more or less all like this one



Looking back to Leadhills, pity about the mist

Tired but happy

Usual shot to finish with, 4 Glescapals

I hope you enjoyed our first walk after the holidays, I am not sure if anybody realised it was 12 miles
Most of have done it before but in a clockwise direction, for some it was the first time, I am sure we all enjoyed the walk
Thanks are again due to Gpal Allan for the map,leading the walk
Thanks to all who were able to attend the walk today
