U3A Walking Group - May 2018

by Tim Wright - 17:34 on 31 May 2018
Fourteen hardy souls made their way around the Mull Head Walk in Deerness today. The sun shone and there was little wind leading to shirt sleeve conditions. After a pause at the Gloup we made our way to the Brough. As some people had not been on the top, six of us took the climb to view the Chapel remains and made it down safely afterwards. Others had seen a colony of shags on their nests and spent their time bird watching while they waited.
 
A coffee break was taken at the TRIG point and then a nice meander along the cliffs. One sad pile of Guillemots egg shells on the edge of one cliff looked like the work of Bonxies, maybe. Up past East Denwick the path went, stimulating many memories for the leader of visits there by tractor, 40 years ago before the road was built. How nice it looks now though. Back at the car park, just as we arrived, the fog rolled in stimulating eight of us to visit Sheila Fleet's excellent cafe for a well deserved lunch.
 
The next meeting will be FRIDAY 29th June at 10 am. It will probably be the Scorradale/Ward Hill walk outlined today but it will depend on the weather forecast nearer the day. If it is wet and windy, a shorter lower walk will be arranged near by.
