Today's road closure (there is nearly always one) was just north of here, so there was hardly any traffic north of Roberton. Normally this is a busy road, so it was a pleasant run alongside the Clyde.
Land either side of the road is for grazing with cows and calves almost everywhere. There were also a lot of oystercatchers, the upper Clyde is one of their strongholds.

The roundabout in the middle distance is where the roads to Lanark and Biggar diverge. In the not too distant past there was no roundabout, just a fork in the road.

The prominent hill in the distance is Tinto with its very large cairn at the summit just discernable.
