We are staying at a small town called Milngavie.
The history of Milngavie dates back to at least 1600, when there was a mill here in a village known at the time as Millgay – remember how I told you to pronounce it yesterday? Makes sense now, right?
Today it is a suburb of Glasgow and known as the gateway to the West Highland Way. Not to mention it is super super cute.
We found the gate where we will be starting from in the morning and met our first fellow hiker to chat about why, where, and when.
We will be following mainly timber posts bearing the thistle-in-a- hexagon logo. Haven’t figured out what it means yet but I am sure we will.
Covid test update 2: we both received negative test results today so we are all set for the rest of the trip.
Dinner and packing tonight to prep for our first 12 mile hike tomorrow that yes-the trail leads us to the Glengoyne Distillary. Hikers on The Way are invited for a wee dram. I think we might just have to indulge to help us with the next 5.
We are heading to Drymen- weather? Who knows? They say just wait and see and it will happen when it happens. Talk to you then.
