 Oh what a difference the weather makes! Biggar Ramblers enjoyed a 5-mile ramble is Douglas Estate on 19th May. A swan with seven cygnets was an attraction as they passed the lake, as were many geese and ducks with their offspring. A photographic opportunity was taken at Castle dangerous, with a coffee stop at the Polish prisoner-of-war camp, where 3000 soldiers were homed from 1940. From there, the walkers climbed uphill and returned to walk round the other side of the lake where lunch was taken. Everyone agreed it was lovely to be out walking on beautiful surroundings
