S: Kirkton Glen, Balquhidder
July 25, 2020 @ 10:30 am - 4:00 pm
Now that government guidelines are allowing a bit more venturing out, Andy and Natalie are keen to go ahead with this meeting on Saturday July 25. This type of outing should comfortably lend itself to social distancing. We will just have to avoid any hugging! If you are interested in participating or for more information, please contact either of them.
An exploratory hill walk to mountain crags at the top of Kirkton Glen. There are old records of Polystichum lonchitis, Asplenium viride, Botrychium lunaria, Equisetum variegatum and others, some or all of which we hope to find still present. We will meet at 10.30am in Balquhidder, at Rob Roy’s Grave (NN5360 2092; parking by the churchyard or at the community hall). From here a good path climbs for 3 miles through woodland to Lochan an Eireannaich. We will explore the surrounding hills and crags for a few hours before returning to the start by around 4pm.
Car parking will be limited so we will seek to car share as much as possible, however we will have to determine this at the time to comply with current guidelines. For up to date information see:
The walk will be strenuous and may involve some modest clambering at attendees’ discretion. Please bring stout footwear, warm clothes, waterproofs, and suncream (because you never know!). And a packed lunch.
Leaders: Andy MacGregor & Natalie Cozzolino
