Weekday Walkers

The next outing of the Weekday Walkers will be to Meikle Bin in the Campsies on TUESDAY 27 AUGUST.

We'll meet at the Campsie Glen Car Park in Crow Road above Lennoxtown (G66 7AB for satnavs) at 10am .. click the pic for a map ...

Crow Road

If anyone requires a lift, or to car share, please let me know and I'll arrange to meet at the Linn Park Golf Course Car Park in Simshill Road (corner of Linnview Avenue .. G44 5EP for satnavs) at 9am.

At Campsie Glen, we'll minimise the number of cars, leaving some at the car park, because of limited space at the walk start point at Todholes. We'll then drive over the Crow Road and down to the B818, where we'll turn right and go the short distance to Todholes and the Forestry car park. We'll then ascend the forestry track southwards towards Meikle Bin, and look in on the Little Bin either on the way up, or on the way back since we''ll be retracing our upward route.

Distance is about 11 km there and back, with a total ascent of about 400m .. likely time is 3-4 hours ....
