Falkland - 9 May

Over the Forth and into Fife went St Leonards Ramblers for their latest walks with the morning stop at the Powmill Milk Bar breaking  the journey to their destination of the Lomond Hills.

Both groups set off in opposite directions from the picnic area at Craigmead with the high walkers heading westwards towards West Lomond which they climbed and descended before reversing their direction and making their way towards East Lomond. The climb up and over East Lomond saw them descend to the town of Falkland where the customary social stop was had.

The Low walkers meantime had set off eastwards along the lower slopes of East Lomond, stopping to admire the views over Glenrothes and out over the Firth of Forth. They then made the long gradual decent towards Little Freuchie before turning west and heading to Falkland to meet up with their companions.

Enough time was spent in the town to enjoy a short visit to the Palace and the local bars and cafes.

The Club’s next walks are replaced with its annual holiday, which this year sees members fly to Madeira to enjoy the climate and experience delights of the island.
