Pick of the Archive – The Kirk Burn

The Kirk Burn, Clachan of Campsie

The Kirk Burn, Clachan of Campsie

A look at some of the older images in the Dunmaglas Photography archive. This photograph is of the Kirk Burn at Clachan of Campsie in East Dunbartonshire, Scotland taken in September 2007. The burn (a Scottish word for a stream or small river) flows from the Campsie Hills and into the Glazert Water – a tributary of the River Kelvin. Much of the burn is secluded and diffcult to reach (especially without a steady foothold and good pair of hiking boots!), due to the steep banks and loose boulders, though the waterfall shown is easily accessed from the path at the end of the street in Clachan of Campsie. Small trout can sometimes be seen in the burn.

Not a particularly well known location but certainly worth finding and there is a great coffee shop / craft gallery in Clachan of Campsie which is open all year round.
