Forfar and District Ramblers walk fortnighly throughout the year, usually alternating Saturdays and Sundays. During the summer we leave the Market Muir Car Park, Forfar at 9.30 a.m. and in the winter we leave at 10.00 a.m. (unless stated otherwise). PLEASE NOTE OUR NEW MEETING PLACE - THIS IS THE CAR PARK BESIDE THE MARKET MUIR WHICH IS BEHIND THE COUNTY BUILDINGS.

***The position, following latest Government advice, is that people from 5 different households can meet outdoors with physical distancing.

See Ramblers website for more information.***

With this is mind we are having a booking system for walks.  Please contact the walk leader if you have any queries or to add your name to the list.

As the walk on 15th August starting at 9.30 is fully booked, the same walk is to be done again starting at 11.30, led by Margaret Mackie.

The following walk, on 30th August, will be a local walk. Details to follow.

Walks may differ from the Area Joint Programme, so again contact the walk leader.


Last year a few of us walked up the Caterthuns and completed questionnaires for Elizabeth Robson, who was doing Postgraduate Research at Stirling University.  She has now completed this and has sent me a copy of her findings. I have forwarded it to those of us who took part but if any of our other members would like a copy, or if I have missed anyone, please let me know and I will forward it to you.
