Hike Clyde Walkway



This evening, I am posting information and images of a small group walk on March 6th., from the village of Carluke to the town of Lanark in S.W. Scotland with much of the route tracking the River Clyde. Distance covered was about eight miles.

Weather conditions were poor with cloudy skies and intermittent rain notwithstanding which light conditions were conducive to photography with a wide range of subjects presented including donkeys, giant Newfoundland dog, gorse in flower, waterfalls, cattle, sheep and Spring flowers.
