Aberlady to North Berwick
Jul 5, 2008

Starting our journey by bus from East Kilbride to Haddington where we had our morning coffee stop. We then headed towards Aberlady a lovely little village on the banks of the Firth of Forth.
Our walk started at Aberlady Bay, after crossing the bridge we then headed along the shoreline to North Berwick another lovely village on the Forth.
From the shore line we were able to see over the Forth to the Lommond Hills in Fife, we also saw the islands of Fidra with it's lighthouse, Craigleith and the Bass Rock with it's lighthouse
Our walk ended at the railway station car park, we then had an hour's social stop whick was enjoyed in North Berwick.

    Glen Lochy
    Apr 26, 2008

    Our day started off by travelling in heavy rain to Killin in Perthshire for our morning coffee stop. We then travelled to Glen Lochy and the start of our walk.
    When we started our walk it was raining very heavily and was quite windy, we walked into the wind and rain. The glen appeared dark like on a winters day, we walked in these conditions until lunchtime where we sheltered in an old barn to have our lunch. After lunch we set off again to climb the hill to walk on the high path back to entrance of the glen where the coach was parked. As we climbed the hill the rain stopped and the sun shone through the clouds, the change in the views was amazing, from being dark and forboding the views became a blaze of colour. This weater remained with us for the rest of our journey back to the coach.
    We then headed back to Killin, and had our social stop at the Killin Hotel.
    We started our walk with dread due to the bad weather, we ended it in high spirits in sushine and fantastic views. Yet again a great walk

    Auchen Castle Circular
    Jan 22, 2008

    Lovely to be out walking, a avery cold but dry day for this lovely walk in the Scottish Borders.
    Our walk started at the Moffat Woolen Mill then up into the hills to the very ruined Auchen Castle, where only a mound is left. After lunch we then headed back a different route and walked along a path at the side of the golf course and returned to Moffat where we had our social stop.
