Sunshine, ice cream and a riverside walk in good company. Is there a better way to spend the afternoon?
Our walking group took a walk on the Clyde side last week for an exploration of the Cuningar Woodland Park, also known as the Cuningar Loop, a wonderful new Forestry Commission park in Rutherglen which opened in March.
It was a perfect day for a walk and some of the group took full advantage of the playpark facilities and tried out the zip slides, swings and bouldering rocks.
There is still some work being done on the park so the birdsong was occasionally interrupted by the sound of diggers but apart from that the day was quite idyllic.
