On a beautiful day I wanted to get out the house. Plus the builder’s across the road were making a racket, so I grabbed a map and went for a walk.

Quickly nipped down the High Street to do a few things, then my aim was to head up to Fairy Hill. This is where the High School Cross Country course used to go. This took me on my way to Yeildsheilds.

Got a bit confused a Yeildshields but finally figured it out and started heading towards Kilncadzow(kill-caig-eh). I had heard someone mentioning that there were remains of an old house/castle in Kilncadzow, so I had a wee look…..never found anything. Gutted!!

After a bit I crossed the road and headed towards Cartland. Never been down this road so it was an interesting walk. When I got to Cartland the road I was meant to be walking down had a closed gate, and plenty of trespassing signs up. I knocked the door to the farm house and explained that I was a hiker who wanted to use the road. They said it was no problem.

This was pretty much a straight road all the way back to Carluke. I did come across a really nice waterfall, which I think was the Lee Burn or The Fiddlers.

After a while this road came familiar as I had walked it as a teenager to get to the pub in Braidwood.

Quick walk through Jocks Burn and then back to the flat.
