A stunning day, walk, interesting locations and well supported on this well planned walk …led by Babs.
We enjoyed a coffee stop and returned for lunch to Balmerino Abbey in the warm sun.
Continuing along the coastal path to Wormit ….with views across the silvery Tay to Dundee….was a perfect ending to our day. Not quite ending though,.. Babs had booked “The View” restaurant where we enjoyed coffee and delicious cakes 🍰
Walk commences above Balmerino.

Sunday 13th March Leader: Mike Andrew
How fortunate we are to have such good leaders, tutors and those with years of experience and history of Scotland. Mike took us on the wonderful Clyde Bridges tour along the river to inform us of characters who frequented these parts that most of us had never heard of.

Led by James, we had a fine walk through woodland park to enter the splendid grounds of Scone Palace. After viewing the small Palace Church surroundings…. we past Perth Racecourse to follow the River Tay path to Waulkmill, …an old Ferry crossing. A series of farm lanes and forest tracks led us back to Scone.
Thanks to James and to Sandra for providing her usual delicious Empire Biscuits on “Mothers Day”.

On a cold sunny day that went like clockwork,…we met at Queen St and travelled by bus to Pollockshaws to be entertained and informed of workings and history of this wonderful Wurlitzer Theatre Organ.
At lunch in the Burrell,… we presented to a surprised Kemal a Birthday Cake to celebrate his 80th Birthday. After viewing the artefacts, …we wondered down through the grounds to the magnificent Pollok House to view its past fine living and servant quarters.
Thanks to Agnes and Harry for another terrific day out.
