Ben Shee Loop: Glen Devon Taster

Sunday 24th January

Leader: Martin Scott Smith

Another very good walk led by Martin, ..there can’t be many paths left in the Ochils that SRC leaders don’t know.  No rain, only a fresh westerly wind to redden our cheeks, dampen our feet and warm the cockles of our hearts …just to be in the hills.

A glimpse of Glensherup reservoir as we climb.

Hillfoots Diamond Jubilee Way: Tillicoultry to Logie Kirk

Sunday 10th January

Leader:  John Hutcheson

Our weather forecasters have their cyberspace sophisticated equipment, however, their all day rain forecast today was well out.    On John’s well led walk,….we never had rain between 9.30am and our return to carpark at 2.45pm.  Terrific turnout and the usual laughs and snippets of history along the way.    Refreshments in Menstrie completed a fine day.

LINLITHGOW CIRCULARS

Sunday 3rd January

It seemed we were all desperate to get a day of fresh air and some of nature’s gifts on our first walk of 2016.  The weather was kind and it was good to see Evie, Frances and Mary back to full fitness after their recent health blips.

Leader: Denis Taylor

We visited the statue of Mary Queen of Scots in the grounds of Linlithgow Palace with backdrop of St Michaels Church with its famous spire.

Alloa Special: A Walk into History

Sunday 27th December

  Another interesting day led by Martin and full of gems of history including towers, original rail lines, distilleries, glass, coal exports and much more to be found in the ‘Wee County.’

Blessed with a sunny warm day, Sandra’s Empire Biscuits and fine company,….this was a grand walk to end 2015 and a bumper successful 15 months for Stirling Rambling Club.

Thanks to our ….76…..members for making it so.

A golden start at Alloa Tower
