Sunday 29th November
Was it Andy Murray in front of the TV that seemed to have caught the imagination,…or was it the atrocious weather forecast for outdoor pursuits that depleted our ranks today? Whatever, this didn’t deter our 4 brave members who did a circular walk from Tillicoultry to Dollar… returning alongside a fast flowing river Devon.
Snow on the Ochils tells the story
Due rewards all round with hot refreshments …..and I do like the look of that Empire biscuit!
Friday 27th November
It may have been a dreich day on our arrival in Glasgow, however, after a bus ride to and from People’s Palace and our excellent lunch stop at the Russian restaurant accompanied with a few refreshments,….the usual banter and fellowship broke through,…as usual. For some,..the Horshoe bar seemed a better place to await return trains !
Thanks to Agnes for lunch arrangements, to John for leadership and Heather for photos

A beautiful day for a walk along Fife woodland tracks and returning by the coastal path. One of the highlights of the day was the visit to the quaint town of North Queensferry, giving us close-up views of the Bridges

The Show was quite sparse of stands in comparison to previous years. That allowed us to head back to city centre earlier and a good inexpensive lunch at the Horseshoe. As expected,…the banter and fun continued into early evening

Sunday 8th November Grade: C. Distance: 7.5 miles; Leader: Martin ScottSmith
A good turnout on Remembrance Sunday was informed by Martin of this village’s rich history and the part it played in Scotland’s industrial past. Our minute’s silence to remember those who gave us this freedom to wander at our leisure,….made the day’s wet weather insignificant.
Setting off from Tullibody… Dumyat in the background
Old Church and graveyard Tullibody. Martin discusses its history alongside this stone coffin.
Preparing for a minute’s silence
Tullibody Heritage Centre: A welcome haven at the end of our interesting walk and a talk by Curator Chris. This fine museum is worth a visit,….☕️ although,…. no guarantee to receive tea, coffee and biscuits provided by Heather. 😇
Wonderful range of artefacts.
