Hike Loch Lomond to Helensburgh, Scotland

                    (Above image shows the hiking group with town of Alexandria in distance,)
Today, my wife and I joined a hiking group on a nine-mile route starting at Balloch on the southern tip of Loch Lomoind in S.W. Scotland then heading west passing through scenic landscapes with finish at Helensburgh on the Firth of Clyde (Clyde Estuary).

For time of year weather was benevolent offering excellent visibility. Temperature hovered around freezing with some ice underfoot.

Overall, an excellent walk.
