Details of Next Walks
All these walks start at 11am, and remember to bring a picnic lunch. While every effort is made to look after walkers, each is responsible for their own safety. All are welcome – just turn up in good time. Children and dogs are welcome but need to be under adult supervision.
Sat 14th September: Cromdale–Grantown Circular (6½ _miles).
Take A95 to Cromdale. Pass through traffic lights then look for right turn signposted to Church. Follow this to Church car park just 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.
Sat 12th October: Fochabers–Jean Carr’s Stone Circular (6 miles)
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 short steep stretches). Downhill after Jean Carr’s Stone.
Sat 9th November: Birkenhill Wood Circuit (5½miles approx)
To get there turn right at the big roundabout as you approach Elgin, on to Thornhill Road heading for Linkwood. Take the third right (immediately be-fore the pedestrian traffic lights) then turn left into the car park in front of the Scotmid Co-op. There is plenty of parking there and there is a nice little cafe round the corner called The Deli for a cuppa at the end. It is a pleasant walk and there are excellent views of the new exercise centre and the new school still in the construction process. We access the route through the Linkwood Distillery.
