|A railway bridge we walked beneath. I thought it was covered with trees, but on the way back we saw a train going across, and I waved to the conductor - and he waved back! It was fabulous!|
Rachel & I decided to walk to Milngavie on Wednesday, via the Kelvin Walkway. The instructions we had printed out were faulty (or we read them wrong) and we lost the Kelvin Walkway just outside Bearsden. So, we walked along Maryhill Road towards Bearsden. We saw signs for a Roman Bath house, and decided we would have our lunch there. We had brought sandwiches, fruit, crackers and other such things for a picnic lunch.
We explored the ruins of the bath house, and had a lovely, leisurely lunch (in the shade, by the old Roman latrine!) and enjoyed relaxing for awhile before we walked back. The original plan had been to walk to Milngavie then get the train home, but we decided instead to just walk back and be home in plenty of time to get ready for institute.
All in all, it was probably a 8.5 mile round trip journey. And a very pleasant one too!
