Kilpatrick – Loch Humphrey: A bright sunny day, little breeze & hardly a cloud.
Hawthorn in full flower. A woodpecker flitting.
Cuckoos calling & couple seen in the distance. Plenty of butterflies.
Trees in leaf, just the ash lagging. Bracken & ferns unfurling.
A last holiday walk this morning out to Duncolm. Great view of hills surrounding Loch Lomond. Photo not so great. walkmap

Glen Fruin Loop: A beautiful walk today, over Beinn Chaorach, Beinn Tharsuinn and Beinn a Mhanaich. Frost and a clear blue sky. Notes, pictures and map: walkmap
Quite a lot of rain recently, but we had a dry hour or so, some sun a a fairly strong breeze.
A few blue damselflies and smallish red dragonflies along the path. Sheltered by the bracken which is starting to droop, lots of flowers go to seed. Scabious coming up strongly.
A few peacock butterflies on the knapweed, a small copper on the path, the odd painted lady and white but fewer than recently.
I love seeing wood pigeons flighting in the wind. The Black Linn was full of rain water.
Another wander round these hills, notes, photos and map: walkmap
