2019 Programme

It’s that time of year again and we are starting to look for ideas for next year’s walks.

All types of walks can be considered whether they are Munros, coastal walks, Corbetts or low level moorland/woodland walks. Anything is worth considering – so give us your ideas.

Sunday 21st – all change.

As you might be coming to expect Sunday’s venue for the walk changed at the last minute.

After looking at the weather forecast and other considerations there were only 2 of us that finally decided to go – Bill and John. We met in Perth and drove to the Birks in Aberfeldy and since we couldn’t find anyone else waiting we decided to have a go at the alternative that had been discussed – Meall Buidhe at the end of Glen Lyon.

The weather wasn’t looking brilliant but, ever hopeful that the forecast was accurate, we set off. The summit was covered in thick cloud and windswept (estimated 35+mph). After the obligatory summit photos we hunkered down, in what shelter there was, for lunch. We were rewarded with the cloud cover breaking up and revealing magnificent views across Rannoch Moor, Glen Lyon and away to the south. About half way down from the top our painfully cold fingers finally thawed out allowing us to appreciate the beauty of Loch an Daimh in the sunshine.


Sunday 21st Aberfeldy

Looking for something to blow away the bleary cobwebs on Sunday – whether that’s from 90th Birthday (60 mad Easy Blackrockers), wedding celebrations (yours truly), or a day of democratic excitement in London (probably about a million others)?  Perthshire is the place for you!

Sunday’s walk takes in the Birks of Aberfeldy, continues over the moor to give out onto magnificent views over Loch Tay and towards Ben Lawers then a return route through pastures and forests all the while looking over of Strath Tay  https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/perthshire/aberfeldy-kenmore.shtml

Better than Askit.  You know it’s what you will need!

Let’s meet at the Birks car park at 9.45 for a 10.15 start.  Fairly gentle stuff but a good long walk.  It should get us finished by 5 o’clock.

Let me know if you’re up for this.  We also have a Plan B up our sleeves if there’s a demand for something a couple of hours shorter.  So let me know if you’d prefer that.

Usual stuff about carsharing, of course.
