Weekday Walks

This is now a past outing .. like to read about it?

The APRIL Weekday Walk will be to the Linlithgow area on TUESDAY 26th .. visiting Beecraigs Country Park, Cockleroy Hill and the Union Canal.

We'll meet at the Visitor Centre car park at 10.30am, then follow the 'Orange Route' initially, picking up the 'Green Route' to the summit of Cockleroy Hill at 278m. We'll descend to the north to the holiday cottages at Williamcraigs and follow the access road down to the Union Canal. We'll then return along the canal and ascend to Beecraigs on the marked route heading south.
