Sunday, 23rd Feb 2014: A wee journey to Blantyre Village ...

Postby poodiecat » Sun Feb 09, 2014 12:21 pm


... and a nip over to Bothwell, too.


Hello! Long time no see on here :)

I am arranging a wee walk, hope you can make it!

Meet at Central Station opposite the Solid Rock Cafe on Hope Street at 11:00 to catch the low level train to Blantyre at 11:24 - arrival at 11:44.

We will come back the same route so probably best to buy a return ticket.
It's just a ride.

There may well be some very muddy bits, so please wear your finest walking boots :)
Oh and since the days are still rather short we may not have much of an opportunity to stop long enough for lunch so I would suggest you bring snacks to keep you going :D

Risking a £1000 fine and putting those fine long-johns at risk!

Thanks again Poodiecat for all that research and finding the muddy parts of Blantyre. And I would have never had a pint in the Hoolets Nest otherwise.

Oh god, yes. I haven't spent so much time trudging through mud since the Commonwealth Games walk.[/quote]

I like the Dusty Bin averting its gaze on the right. And who could blame it?
