View to Loch Lomond across Stockie Muir

With the sun shining, Lola and I decided to head out of town for a long walk in the country. The plan was to head for Loch Ardinning for our usual wander along the loch and across the muir. However, the traffic on Maryhill Road was very heavy, meaning a long queue at the roadworks on the road to Milngavie. So we changed our minds and headed up through Bearsden towards Drymen for a wander from the Queen’s View to The Whangie.

What a good decision it turned out to be. Not for avoiding the potential delays as there were roadworks in Bearsden as well, but simply for the stunning views towards Loch Lomond and the mountains beyond. It’s been way too long since we have done this walk, and I had more or less forgotten how splendid the views can be.
