Conachcraig trip awaits Ellon walkers

Ellon Hillwalking Club gear up for their next walk which takes place on Sunday, December 14.

The group will tackle Conachcraig - a hill which is passed on the way to Lochnagar.

It lies on the west side of Glen Muick and is quite prominent in a number of well-known views of Lochnagar from Deeside.

The walk is likely to take about four hours to complete.

The group will meet in the Car Park at Ellon Academy at 8am on the morning of Sunday, December 14.

A minibus will transport those taking part in the walk to and from the Spittal of Glenmuick.

If you are interested in joining the group please text Allan Brown on 07745 096919 by Thursday, December 11.
