34 members set off from Amisfield Village Hall on a 5 mile circular walk around Barr Hill. Use of toilets in hall were generously offered by hall committee and gratefully accepted. A representative from the village welcomed us.
Our walk took us on undulating roads past East Lanegate to start of old drovers road. From here we climbed up to Hill Fort on Barshell Hill which offered fantastic views on all sides. Weather was very cold but dry. We had lunch stop on leeward side of hill .
On return to drovers road we continued past Damhead and Cotland farms down into Tinwald where we visited the Covenanters Monument in the churchyard. From there a short walk took us back to Amisfield.
