December 2019

Sat 14th December: Dufftown Walk and Lunch. We walked by the Dullan Burn to the Giant’s Chair, returned by quiet road to Mortlach, then up to Golf Course to return to Dufftown by Glenrinnes Way. Some ups and downs. Distance 4.5miles. Lunch at Commercial Hotel, soup and sandwiches, mince pie and tea and coffee.

Jean Carrs Stone – October 2019

Coming from west pass Fochabers Square and continue through lights to Museum (old Church) on left and Chip Shop on right. Turn right here into East Street, and continue just past play park and tennis court to park in front of Public Toilets on left, or nearby. Route is mainly through woods. Paths generally good, but muddy and rough in places. Walk has 600ft of easy as-cent (only steep stretches). Downhill after Jean Carr’s Stone. 

Sat 14th September: Cromdale–Grantown Circular (6½ _miles).

There is no write up or photographs of this walk at the moment, but it did go ahead!

Take A95 to Cromdale. Pass through traffic lights then look for right turn signposted to Church. Follow this to Church car park before Church on right – this side of bridge over Spey. We walk through Anagach Woods to the outskirts of Grantown, then back by the River Spey. Note Going back by Spey dogs should be kept on leads through farming land. Lovely walk with open pine woods, river views and good paths. Mainly level.
