The plans for today had been changed several times so it was news to the walkers that we were travelling to Loch Leven in the minibus. We ususally do a circular but this was a one way walk so Bob and Margaret kindly took their car so that the minibus driver could be driven to the start of the walk to pick up the minibus. Got that?
Anyway, we parked up at Loch Leven Larder and began the walk in the rain. Unfortunately we were very exposed at the start with no trees to protect us from the rain or the wind. But we progressed at a good rate even with wet trousers and cauld knees. Once we reached the path through the woods we were sheltered and dried off pretty quickly. With Carsehall Bog between us and the Loch, we didn't get much sight of the water at this point but we did get fabulous views of the hills which still have little pockets of snow atop. The Bishop Hill was amazing - you can just make it out behind the walkers.
