Now that the weather had drastically improved, I was itching to get out walking in the hills. My parents kindly offered to look after Isabel for the day today and so at 10:30am this morning I found myself setting off walking from the Forestry Commission car park at the road head in Glen Doll.
The Kilbo Path was well signposted from the main forestry track and I was soon ascending up the wooded hillside on a good path; the ground around the path was festooned with wild flowers, which I struggled to identify. It was already very warm in the sunshine and I was soon stopping for a drink of water! The path now entered a welcome shady area where it was pleasantly cool amongst the trees.
