Monknash, 21st June

Lead: Mags and Moira,

10am saw Liz, Graham, Richard, Moyra D (new member) Moira C and myself set off under cloudy skies and a gentle north easterly breeze.

On turning into Chapel Road, as arranged, we met up with Marie who joined us on our walk toward Monknash. A visit to St Mary Magdalene, 12th Century Church, graveyard (the church was locked) proved an interesting detour from our planned route.

On retracing our steps, we carried on past ‘The Plough’ and the campsite down to the junction of Cwm Nash where we turned right to clamber over the stone stile that led us through the fields, one with majestic grazing horses, over a further two stiles, on to the road back to the campsite where we stopped a while for refreshments and a viewing of the luxurious ‘glamping’ accommodation on offer. 

Properly refreshed, we continued our return journey to Wick where respective homes, and cars for those who live further afield, were sought.

Beautiful hedgerows, good company, much humour, fine weather was the order of the morning. We bid goodbye in fine spirits, with a promise of further walks in coming Mondays and Saturdays.
