u3a Walking Group 2 - March 2024

by Ellie - 16:12 on 06 March 2024

The group welcomed three new folk to the walking group for our walk on Monday 4th March.  We met at the Orphir Church car park for our third walk of the year. We were very lucky with the weather after the last few weeks of rain and high winds, a perfect day for a walk, a bright blue sky, and a very moderate wind. From the car park we made our way along the main road for ½ a mile before turning right to follow the track to Swanbister, the little glen at Swanbister House was full of snowdrops. We continued along the track to the Bay of Toy Ness. It was a little bit muddy but not quite as bad as expected, we followed the bay to the old pier, where we had a short break to admire the views.  After a couple of interesting facts about the area via the very knowledgeable Tim, we retraced our steps back to the farm and turned left to make our way back to the cars, on our way passing the remains of a water mill. On arriving at the cars, it was time for a hot drink and a slice of cake. A great walk with great company, the walk was just over four miles.

Our next walk is on Monday 8th April, the second Monday of the month, a little later than usual.
