Dolphinton to Ferniehaugh returning by White Hill, Saturday 26th March, 4.5 miles, leader Carolyne Murray

9 Ramblers set out on a wet and windy afternoon from Kippel lay-by in Dolphinton and walked south towards the church. They took a left turn 100 yards up the road into the wood and continued round Hamel Hill to White Hill descending to Garvald and the Dunsyre Road. They then headed towards Whinney Knowe, on a very muddy path. Here they stopped to chat to some inquisitive horses! Returning to the starting point they passed twp ponds, where they saw various water fowl. This convivial walk finished at the Red Barn, where a welcome cuppa and fresh baking were much appreciated by all!
