Another one from my trip back in April to Langbank.

Mostly just a wander around the Muirsheil Country Park and up to the top of Windy Hill to see if it lived up to its name (it did), but then I extended it to follow the mine track since I had nothing else planned for the day.

Very obvious paths since the country park is aimed at everybody, was very quiet though - likely due to the time of the year I was there.

The usual Scottish undecided weather kicked in, with the day starting out sunny and clear and ending with hail stones...
