We started our trek in Milngavie (Mel-guy) around 10:00 under mostly sunny skies and surprisingly warm temperature. We thought we could expect some showers to creep in a bit after noon but we were prepared for that. It was already a bit warmer than expected so we , or at least I, were hoping things would turn out better than forecast. We left the village strolling through park land by the Allender Water (River?). The going was easy at this point and marred only by the fact that this close to the town and the official southern terminus this is a popular stretch of trail. I can't begin to tell you how many people and dogs, large and small, we saw. The dogs, by the way, were petty much all off leash. if you are nervous around dogs perhaps you should keep that in mind if you decide to hike here.
