Ellon walking club adventure

Get active and tick something else off your list this summer by joining the Ellon Hillwalking Club.

The club are going on a walk which takes place on Sunday, August 18, to the Tolmount which runs from Braedownie in Glen Doll to Auchallater in Glen Clunie.

It is one of the rugged through walks in Scotland as it climbs to 910 metres and crosses a large track of exposed high plateau with few landmarks.

The walk is 20km long with an ascent of 690 metres from the Glen Doll, probably about a 7 hour walk.

A minibus will drop the party in Glen Doll and be driven around to Auchallater to meet everyone at the finish of the walk.

If you are to the challenge this summer then it is time to pull up your socks as there are still a few spaces available in the minibus.

Please get in touch with Gordon Spence if you are interested by calling on 01358 788998 as soon as possible to book a space and receive the arrangements for pick up.

The club provide a friendly environment in which to get to know the countryside a little better.
