On Saturday (27.3.10) we decided to concentrate on distance, we left Falkirk around 13:10 and walked up towards Hallglen and Shieldhill where the plan was to proceed down through Brightons and Polmont but in Liz's true style we managed to differ from the planned route. Once we reached Shieldhill we headed up to and past California, taking a route that was unknown to us both, however that's the fun of walking, it was a beautiful day and we have got to get the miles under our belt!
Eventually in the distance we recognised Cockleroy (a hill that looks over Linlithgow) and realised how far out we'd actually walked. We soon arrived at Bowhouse roundabout near Muiravonside and took the road that takes us down through Maddiston but not before stopping for a refuel.
After a wee sandwich etc. we proceeded to walk down through Maddiston, Rumford and Brightons before arriving back in Falkirk where we walked past Callander Park and back to our start/finish point! A total of 14miles in 3hrs 50mins.
