Cycling

A group of Angus Cycling Club members drove up to Kenmore on Sunday for a change of scene.

Starting from the car park on Loch Tay they set off up past the crannog on the south side of the loch, enjoying the sunny weather and the fine views.

A few steep climbs had them working hard as they continued along through Ardtalnaig and Ardeonaig.

Eventually they arrived at Killin where, after weaving their way past the tourists, they bought some provisions and headed up Glen Lochay for lunch.

For most of the time they were sheltered from a headwind by the trees and made good progress to Kenknock at the top of the glen where they began the long haul over the hill to Loch Lyon.

Once in Glen Lyon they benefited from a good tail-wind all the way down to Bridge of Balgie, where they chose to turn up towards Ben Lawers.

A long gentle climb for a few miles led to a fine descent to the dam.

From there it was a speedy a spectacular descent to Loch Tay, then following the main road along the north shore past Fearnan they made their way back to Kenmore.

This coming weekend members will head to the bothy for a camping weekend and working party on the Friday and Saturday nights. A barbecue and social evening will be included.

The Wednesday night outing (tonight) will be to Newtyle.
