This is now a past outing .. like to read about it?
The MAY Weekday Walk will be to the Falkirk and Bonnybridge area on WEDNESDAY 25th .. visiting the John Muir Way and the Antonine Wall from the Falkirk Wheel, and returning along the Forth and Clyde Canal.
We'll meet at the Car Park in Millenium Wheel Drive at 10.30am .. please see below ...
Satnavs: FK1 4AD (as close as possible)
Maps: GR NS854806
From the car park, we'll cross over the canal to view the Wheel, then follow the John Muir Way westwards past the Rough Castle fort until the outskirts of Bonnybridge.
We'll make a visit to the tricky summit of Cowden Hill (only 59m!) then descend to the canal and return eastwards to the Wheel.
I've outlined the route with a dotted purple line below .. please click for a downloadable version for printing ....
STOP PRESS: Walk distance is actually 8.5km (5.3 miles), with 115m total ascent, and likely time of 2.5 hours .. ideal for anyone wanting a shorter walk with little ascent.
If required, refreshments could be taken at the Wheel cafe, or at the Boardwalk just north of the parking area.
If you're going on this walk, please let me know by Tuesday 24th May so that I knew who to expect .. !
