Our walk took us along the main road and then a turning onto the Archallagan Plantation single lane road. We had originally intended to walk a 2 hour loop around the lanes but one of our party started to feel unwell, so we decided to cut the walk short by half an hour and continued instead through the plantation and back out the other side.
There were quite a lot of people out enjoying the planation paths, walkers and cyclists and families with young children. The morning was mainly overcast and dull but reasonably warm, around 17C, so pleasant for walking.
Back at the car park we went into the MSPCA café for coffee and cake - walnut cake this week - one large slice cut into four pieces.
A good chat for half an hour and then the drive back home for a late lunch of sourdough bread with cottage cheese and sliced beetroot from the garden.
I may just read for the rest of the afternoon.
