Extracts from two songs immediately spring to mind to reflect today's walk and they are; "mud glorious mud" and "slip sliding away". Although we had a lovely day to walk, days of rain had turned the path into a bit of a mud slithering event. Thankfully most had walking poles to help keep balance.
This walk was last done on 10 October 2010, so look at that blog more a more detailed description. Although a bit hazy today we were still offered lovely views over Loch Leven, the Sleeping Giant and the lovely countryside. Comments were made about the amount of flowers which continued to bloom in November and although it was a very still day we managed to see some gliders in the sky overhead. We also made comment on two figures climbing up the shoulder of the hill carrying what appeared to be very large packs. A short will later they were overhead - para gliders with their brightly coloured parachutes descending at what seemed a great speed.
Our coffee stop was Lochend Farm Shop where we enjoyed freshly baked goodies. As daylight as starting to fade we said our Walkers Prayer and headed for home
