Friockheim Hillwalkers

The November meeting of Friockheim and District Hillwalking Club saw 15 members head to Bridge of Cally to complete a circular walk taking in parts of the Cateran Trail.

The route taken was by following the track southwards to beyond West Gormack Farm, returning partly before joining another track leading north-westerly over Cochrage Muir and down through the forest to meet another section of the trail leading back to the starting point. A distance of 16k was covered in very favourable conditions - underfoot was quite muddy especially on the outward section, but this was hardly surprising given the amount of rainfall in the area during the previous week.

The next club walk on Sunday, December 21 is to Backwater Dam with a pre-walk meeting at 8 p.m. 
in the Star Inn, Friockheim, on Thursday, December 18, followed by a ‘Scotland by the Roadside’ quiz and mince pies.
