This has been cancelled because it clashes with a major wall-building work party at Davie's Bourach. The "Hampers and Champers" social meet will now take place in May 2020.
Ancrum Road is running a 5 day trip to Skye. As a club member you would get a 10% discount. See details here
Meet at North Mains road end at 19:30.
Please use shared cars if possible, because there is only limited parking at the end of the public road at North Mains farm. The route takes the farm track down to Ethie Haven, then clambers up the rope to the cliff top, then follows the coastal track round the top of the cliffs. Near the top, you will see guillemots, razorbills and kittiwakes nesting on small ledges. Puffins are often out in the water, but fly into their burrows on the promontory just below the old fort. The route carries on through the fort to the trig point, and returns down the track at the side of the field between the 2 reservoirs and back to the cars. About 5km. Also Soay sheep can be seen grazing on the steep grass below the cliffs and on the shore. It's a lovely wee walk. Need binoculars to get the most out of it.
