Holehead - Waterhead Circular

ReportsPosted by Ann Bain Sat, March 24, 2018 15:55:40
This walk was a last minute change to the programme because of treacherous underfoot conditions on the Meikle Bin recce which was to replace another walk.

Surinder's strollers numbered 17 and the walk started at the layby on the Crow Road.

Our group are multi talented and Eric occasionally demonstrates the Paso Doble at the start of a walk.

Meantime our leader was wandering what she had let herself in for.

A short walk along the road took us onto the track leading up to Holehead with the mighty Meikle Bin in the background.

After an arduous climb up to Holehead we stopped for our tea break just below the giant's golf tee.

No walk on Holehead is complete without a visit to our Trig point where pink paint can still be made out. Work party anyone?

Occasionally, a member will make a small faux pas, and once again Matt put his size 10 in it.

In fairness he was not the only one but I wasn't quick enough to snap the others.

Crossing back over the Crow Road we walked up to Waterhead through the forest, stopping for lunch in a sunny clearing.

A vote of thanks was given by Ella to Surinder particularly in view of the difficulties encountered in her recces for what was her first time as walk leader.
