A snowy March walk

EIGHT members attended the Friockheim and District Walkers’ Club walk in Glen Doll on Sunday, March 17.

The walk was to Broad Cairn and Cairn Bannoch. The conditions were snowy with poor visibility and it was agreed not to proceed any further.

The group enjoyed lunch in very picturesque conditions at Bachnagairn bridge.

The next walk will be on Sunday, April 21, to the Tarmachan Ridge with the pre-walk meeting being held on Thursday, April 18, at the Star Inn, Friockheim at 8 p.m. Brian Crowe, Outdoor Dimensions, will be doing a session map reading. Anyone attending should bring Ballater map 44 and a compass.

In June the club walk will be to Jock’s Road and seats on the bus will be open to non-members. Anyone interested should contact the secretary, Allison Campbell on 07542198617 for further information.
