WALK REVIEW: 22nd January 2017
As a group walk co-ordinator for the #walk1000miles community, I decided it would be a nice idea to do the Burns’ Trail in time for Burns Day, traditionally celebrated on 25th January which was the famous poet’s birthday. Since that day fell midweek we did the walk the weekend prior: 7 adults and 5 dogs. Not normally a ‘doggy person’, I was a little out of my comfort zone at first but quickly got used to the antics of my new furry friends! A quick whiff of poo being scooped into a bag was however enough to remind me why we have cats at home 😉 They all seemed to enjoy it, particularly along the cycle track where there was plenty of mud to run around in… and shake off! They did go home “clean” though after a splash around in Slaphouse Burn towards the end.
