After setting off from Milngavie today’s route passes through the ancient earldom of Lennox between the Campsie Fells and Blane Water. You follow a series of good paths through beautiful rural scenery to the small village of Drymen.  A recommended stop is the Glengoyne Distillery, where you can take a tour and enjoy a wee dram to send you on your way. Enroute to Drymen is the Beech Tree Inn, which has a lovely garden and serves great food.

Drymen is slightly off the route, so refer to your map to ensure that you don’t overshoot the mark.

Easy day walking helped by gorgeous weather. Great lunch at Beech Tree but if you hang on just few more metres there’s a brilliant little place called ‘turnip the beet’. Lovely home made food and cakes. Lunch deal £4.50.

My wife Jean and I are a 61 year old couple from Pennsylvania. We’re experienced hikers who like to take our time and enjoy the scenery. My GPS came up with 14.3 miles for this leg, but we took a side trail to Mugdock Castle (worth doing) and again to the distillery and tour. This was a 7.5 hour day for us. We stayed at Ashbank B&B in Drymen and ate at the Clachin Inn (must do). If you’re early (5ish) you’ll get a seat at Clachin but if you want to eat after 6:00 I’d call and make a reservation. Great first day.
