A train ..then a bus with a short journey that took us into beautiful park surroundings, then fantastic views over the City, to Fife and the Bass Rock. We may have been small in numbers, however, we were rewarded with a gorge, an observatory, picturesque gorse, a dell …and good company.  Thanks to James for such an imaginative walk and to Heather for pics.
