Ellon Hillwalking Club Outing

ELLON Hillwalking Club’s next walk is on Sunday, March 17, to the Ailnack Gorge.

This is a striking gorge with a pinnacle of rock called ‘The Castle’ at its head.

It will start from Dorback Lodge, the road to which is signed for Dorback from the A939 Grantown-Tomintoul road.

The route is south east from here and is a round trip of about 18km with a total ascent of around 600m – about six hours walking.

Meet in the car park at Ellon Academy at 8am on the morning of March 17 to agree transport arrangements.

If you would like to join the walk let Barbara Wyatt (01358 711733) know by Thursday, March 14.
