Walk into history- Saturday on the Clyde

I love walking on both sides of the Clyde near where I live. On the overgrown side, there are old coal runners and ruins of Monasteries. On the side we walked today, there are all sorts of wee reminders that this used to be a very different place. We found a 200 year old grave by the overgrown remains of an old house, passed sandstone cliffs full of fossils and high water marks from the 1780s, oak trees with faces that could probably tell stories of their own before arriving at the ruins of Bothwell Castle, former sanctuary of Mary Queen of Scots. All this started from the bridge at the Millhouse where David Livingstone was raised. I wonder how many people know what's on their doorstep? Go a walk and see where it takes you
