Walkers take on Glen Moy

Twenty-four members attended Friockheim Hillwalkers’ March meet to Glen Moy.

Starting at the bridge over the Burn of Glenmoye 17 members headed past the farm and uphill over Shank Hill, Rough Craig and Balbui before heading north East to Hill of Glansie (726m). A circular route was then taken by Dog Hillock, Meg Swerie, Finbracks and Manywee before heading down to the bothy and back to the cars along the West Burn of Glenmoye.

Seven members opted to take a shorter circular route heading north east towards Glencuilt, then north round by Craigthran and to the bothy before returning to the cars. This was seven miles in four hours.

The next club meeting is at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, at the Star Inn, Friockheim. The speaker will be Peter Hargraves on the Rob Roy Way. The next walk on Sunday, April 20, is a Lochnagar circular route from Loch Muick. Contact 01575 575206.
