Big Country Walks

Article Date: 30th June 2016

Big Country Walks are usually held every two weeks and are suitable for all, regardless of age and ability. All are welcome and walks are well supported, providing not only exercise but great fun too.


With warmer weather, we look forward to a set of easy, attractive strolls, that take us through some of the best of Scottish countryside. Most are suitable for anyone of any age. Occasionally we go uphill, and these are clearly marked. Transport can be arranged for those who don’t drive. For more information phone Mike 07876453499. Please invite interested non-members to join us.

Sunday 10th July: Fife Coastal Path St Monans to Elie: our last visit to the coastal path which has given us a lot of pleasure. A simple 4 mile walk. Meet at St Monans Harbour at 2-30pm sharp. We get the bus back.

Sunday 24th July: Errol circuit. We’ve scheduled this walk twice and had to cancel because of poor weather. It’s an easy wander through fields to the River Tay and back. Meet in the Main Street in Errol at 2-30pm. 41/2 miles.

Sunday 7th August: Tullybaccart to Smithton Hill: SOME UPHILL BITS, BUT NOTHING SERIOUS. A moorland walk with great views. Can be boggy if it’s been wet, so wear boots. Meet at Tullybaccart Lay-by on Cupar Angus road at 2-30pm. 4 miles circular.

Sunday 21st August: North Inch Perth: A simple stroll through the Inch to some rougher banks of the Tay. Meet at the city end of the Inch, parking in streets nearby, at 2-30pm. Bring a picnic if the weather is good. Maximum 5 miles, but you can shorten it if you want.

Sunday 28th August: Glen Doll: Meet at the Glen Doll Car Park at 2-30pm for a walk through the forest to Corrie Fee. There is some ascent, but not too much. The corrie, which we shall not climb,  is a stunningly beautiful wild place, worth seeing.
