All the elements fell in place: an untracked route through the wilder side of the Campsies, a break in the rain, and a generous turnout of keen Westies. I counted 17 or so starters, and more or less the same number again at the finish! Ian’s popular route took us along forestry path, up an overgrown fire break, across a burn, up to the summit of Meikle Bin (pausing to check out a Merlin engine and wing fragment), where we enjoyed extensive views across to Stirling and the Arrochar Alps, a slippery descent through more forest to a second burn, a tussock traverse, pause to check out the remains of a recent Big Cat kill, summiting Lecket Hill, then descending a grassy slope and crashing through the trees to return to the car park barely two hours after setting off. Congrats to first-time Steph for surviving one of the tougher club runs with at least the hint of a smile at the end. The official curry night was observed by a small group at the local chippie. A braw evening!
