Hillwalking club outing

Ellon Hillwalking Club’s next walk will be on Sunday, November 17.

The outing will be to the Canness Glen, which is a dramatic little glen with waterfalls at the head of Glen Isla.

The walk starts at Auchavan, at the end of the minor road up Glen Isla, and the round trip will be about 16km with 200m of ascent.

Organisers say it will probably involve about five hours of walking with a stop on the way home for food.

Walkers will meet in the car park at Ellon Academy at 7.30 on the morning of the 17th, where a minibus will take those taking part in the outing to and from Auchavan.

If you are interested in joining the outing, get in touch with Irene Jamieson on 01358 711242 by Thursday, November 14.

The hillwalking club currently has more than 50 members and offers a varied programme of events throughout the year.
