ANNAN WALKING GROUP AWAY WEEKEND - AUGUST 2023
Please find below a selection of photos taken on the Walking Group 2023 weekend away, based in Cumnock:
Walks are scheduled for the second Sunday and fourth Saturday of the month and are normally under 6 miles in length and within a 50 mile radius of Annan. The walks are varied and may be local or further afield in Kirkcudbrightshire , Cumbria ( Eden Valley, Lake district etc.) or throughout Dumfriesshire.
As well as car share we often hire a minibus to help get members to and from the start of the walk. The minibus leaves from Murray Street Car Park in Annan and seating is on a "first come first served" basis. Members are asked to pay a fare towards the cost of using the minibus and please bring a change of shoes with you to keep the minibus clean. Please contact the Transport Co-ordinator on the numbers below (under group information and membership) if you have any transport queries.
When we can, we arrange an Away-Day each year, which takes us further afield and incorporates a post-walk meal to round off a good day out. Similarly every second year we try to arrange a Weekend-Away where we base ourselves at a particular location and enjoy several walks over the weekend in the surrounding area. So far the walking group have been to Whitby, Oban, Hawes, Kirriemuir and Melrose to enjoy the weekend away.
