Leisurely 6 miles / 9.7 km
Next walk Saturday 21st December (Note change of start point. It is now starting at Abbotsford House Car Park and not Nutwood as advertised in Trail))
The next walk is the now celebrated annual Mince Pie walk. It is a circular walk of approx 6 miles with negligible ascent and will start at 10.00hrs from the car park at Abbotsford House( OS338, NT508344). We will walk down the riverside to Melrose before heading back along the Daffodil Walk path to Darnick. We will go through Shunter's Wood then pass Lowood Nursery and rejoin the riverside to walk back to Abbotsford. The walk will take around 3 hours.
Mince pies and perhaps a bit more! will be on offer and we will have these when we get to Melrose. All you need to bring is yourself and a sense of humour. Festive hats have become a feature over the years (although not obligatory) and we'd love to see as many of you as possible dressed up. If you want to take dressing up to an extreme then that's perfectly fine too!
At the end of the walk there will be the opportunity to have coffee and cake or lunch in the cafe at Abbotsford.
