|3rd tump of 5 today, after Craigend Hill and Douglas Park. From Hillfoot station i took the next train and alighted at Westerton station. Straight up to an access point into the woodland then followed the path near the boundary before venturing into the centre to explore the summit contenders, a large stone, clumps of earth near trees but rhododendrons have been largely cleared in this area. Lots of dry pieces of wood lying about. Re-traced steps back to Westerton station, enjoying the cooler conditions in the woodland, on a scorching day in the Glasgow area.||Dazingdale||28/05/2018|
