Christine Cameron will be leading a “C” walk around Cairnoch Hill to the North of Carron Valley Reservoir. The 11km walk with 220m of ascent will be at a slow pace, on quiet roads and forestry tracks going around the mountain with a short detour to visit the ruins of Sir John de Grahams Castle. Christine will be serving Irn Bru and shortbread for an early commemoration of Burns Day on 25th January. It has proven difficult to arrange to use a mininbus or taxi so we will use cars, leaving Southbank Car Park at 09:00hrs. There are only a couple of places left so if you are interested, please contact Christine on 07802 320958 as soon as possible. Walkers should take a lateral flow test before the walk and bring hand sanitiser and a face mask which should be worn whilst inside the car.
