Day 17 – Linlithgow to Croy hill

Now following yesterdays blinding canal walk, we ramp up for the same again. But soon start to realise, theres only so much straight line walking with no gradients one can take. Especially as underfoot is mainly concrete. However we are overwhelmed by the musky aroma of fresh Yarrow growing along these canal banks…

We are mildly impressed by the Falkirk wheel (featured pic), and before reaching we take a quick walk into Falkirk for some quick supplies which takes longer than expected. Which adds on a few miles to an already long walk.

As we reach the walks end, we walk up Croy hill overlooking Kilsyth, we set up camp, get a fire going and cook up a stir fry before departing to sleep..
