It will now be on SATURDAY 15th JANUARY .. PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE OF DATE .. and will be a round of the Locherwood Community Woodland and Lady Muir Woodland within the Clyde Muirshiel Country Park, with an optional ascent of the Windy Hill viewpoint at 316m, where a nip of port and brandy and a chunk of cake can be enjoyed.
