2 members attended. The scheduled meet to Creag Meagaidh was cancelled due to a very bad weather forecast. Instead, a local meet took place. Started at Midtown, Glen Queich, walked to Buckies, then over to Hillside and Glen Moy. Climbed from Glack, over to Horniehaugh and back to Midtown. 10k, 325m ascent, 3 hours. Walk finished at 13:45.
10 members and 1 guest attended. By minibus. The weather was a bit showery until they reached the top of Braeriach then it was a fine late afternoon's walk back to the bus at the sugar bowl car park. At times the midges were intolerable as it was quite mild. The ground was incredibly rough and complex between the Glen Feshie plateau and the foot of Braeriach which took a bit of time. Started at 09:40 finished 18:30, so a long day, but enjoyable, great views from the top across to Cairn Toul group and beyond. Thanks to Richard Lockwood for his driving and stopping for tasty chips at House of Bruar. We were back at the myre at 2130, a long day! (photo in Chalamain Gap)
13 members, a guest and 3 dogs attended. We met near Blairno Farm, then drove up through CraigenDownie to the bridge. We then walked past Nathro Farm, to see the plaque to Peter Grant, who hid here (staying with his daughter) from government troops for many years after Culloden in 1746. He was eventually pardoned by George IV in 1822. Walk was 5.5km in total. A pleasant stroll on a dry and bright evening.
19:30 at Forfar Fire Station. Open Meeting, followed by illustrates talk. “Southesk to Saskatchewan” by Gavin Hunter.
By shared car, leaving Myre car park at 07:00. Contact Colin or Willie to say you are going and we will wait on you. More details later.
