Drive round the Campsies

A short trip driving round the Campsie Hills and Carron Valley on a sunny Friday afternoon between the town of Kilsyth and Campsie Glen via Carron Bridge.

First picture is from ‘Tak Ma Doon Road’ between Kilsyth and Carron Bridge:

With snow still on the ground from earlier in the week it added some variety to some of the pictures I was expecting to get.

Shortly after I passed the Carron Valley Reservoir.  First picture is of the water flowing down from the damn with a snow covered Meikle Bin in the background and the second picture is just a general view from the top of the damn across the reservoir:

A quick drive further along the road beyond the Reservoir  we reach the next stopping point at the ‘Loup of Fintry’ on the Endrick Water.  A short walk after parking the car I reached the waterfall with a big drop and a scenic background:

Now starting to head back towards ‘civilisation’ we get to the ‘Car Park in the Sky’ near Lennoxtown.  There were good views looking towards Glasgow & Cumbernauld but unfortunately no pictures due to the positioning of the sun but I went a short walk a found some waterfalls:

So after a short break I went to my last location of the day, Campsie Glen for more waterfall photography, only took a few pictures due to time limitations but there was plenty of different shots that I could have took:

Overall it was an enjoyable and scenic drive with plenty of photographic opportunities.
