Ramblings - Series 21 - 4. Larkhall, South Lanarkshire

Clare walks with Scott Cunningham, veteran of some of Britain's long-distance walks and bagger of multiple Munros, and the dog he describes as his 'best mate', Travis.

Clare Balding is walking with dogs (and their owners) throughout this series of Ramblings.

Prog 4: Larkhall, South Lanarkshire.

This week Clare Balding travels to Larkhall in South Lanarkshire to meet Scott Cunningham. A veteran of some of Britain's long-distance walks (including the West Highland Way, the Pennine Way and the Southern Upland Way) as well as the bagger of multiple Munroes, he never walks without the dog, he describes as his 'best-mate', Travis.

On this walk around the Larkhall area, he describes the intensity of their relationship and the joy of his companionship. This will be a particularly moving walk for Scott, as Travis - who is a guide-dog - is retiring the following day, and a new dog, Milo, will take over.

Scott was awarded an MBE last year for his achievements, which include raising over £150,000 for Guide Dogs for the Blind.
