This is now a past outing .. like to read about it?
The JUNE Weekday Walk will be to the Inverclyde area on THURSDAY 30th .. visiting the Kelly Cut and Loch Thom.
We'll meet at the Overton car park north of the Greenock Cut at 10.00am ....
Satnavs: PA16 9LJ
Maps: GR NS266749
We'll then walk down to Drumfrochar railway station for the 10.31 train to Wemyss Bay .. it's about 1km from the car park to the station. The station is unmanned, so we should look to get our tickets on the train.
It's then a short walk from Wemyss Bay station to find the track that goes up beside the Kelly Burn to the Kelly reservoir. From there we'll take the Kelly Cut to the Greenock Cut visitors centre, where there's a chance to stop at the café across the road, before continuing along the road beside Loch Thom and back to the Overton car park.
I've outlined the route with a dotted purple line below .. please click for a downloadable version for printing ....
Walk distance is about 12km (7.5 miles), with 350m total ascent, and likely time of 3-3.5 hours ....
If you're going on this walk, please let me know by Wednesday 29th June so that I knew who to expect .. !
