Glen Quoich in the Cairngorm National Park
Aug 30, 2008

A great walk starting at the White Bridge over the River Dee. We walked over the bridge into The Mar Lodge Estate and turned right to start our walk, we headed for Quoich Water and walked along the river then headed up into Glen Quoich and back through the Mar Estate to our car.
The circular walk was 9 miles long

Langholm Circular
Jun 7, 2008

Beautiful day and lovely and warm, possible too hot for walking. To-day our walk took us to Langholm in the Scottish Border Country, lovely area to walk in.
We enjoyed most of the walk , the start was very nice but further into the walk although the views were lovely, there were some very long straight stretches of path which at times became quite boring, also there was almost 2 miles of road walking which is really unsuitable to take 50 people on, as it would be unsafe.
We had a day out walking, so we still enjoyed ourselves

Kinnoull Hill Perth to Scone in Perthshire
Jun 3, 2008

A recci for the Midweek Walking Group with Bob, Myra, Alan and myself.
A walk in one of our favourite areas, starting off our day at a lovely tearoom in the Fair City of Perth
A very misty day with very fine rain for quite a bit at the beginning of the walk, our waterproofs were taken off and put on again so many times during this walk. Although it was raining for some of the walk it remained very hot throughout the whole day.
Usually the views on this walk are very good, but due to the mist we were unable to see for any distance, but the walk was still very enjoyable, and of coarse to finish the walk at the Scone Arms where we had a lovely meal was just the icing on the cake.

Glen Aggart, Durisdeer to Carronbridge
May 24, 2008

Walking in the beautiful Borders Countryside on a beautiful sunny day,with a good group of friends, what more could we ask for.
Our walk started at the lovely old church at Durisdeer where the Queensberry Marbles are housed. In the graveyard is a
Martyr's Grave dating back to 1685 from the Covenanting period in Scottish history.
Our walk took us up very long paths where we had great views over the borders country, we stopped at the top of the hills to have lunch and could see Drumlanrig Castle and Morton Castle from our lunch spot.
After lunch we were able to stop into the Ruins of Morton Castle before carrying on our walk and heading downhill to Carronbridge the end of our walk. We then headed off by car to Thornhill where we had a pub meal at the Thornhill Inn, what better way to finish the day
