Macbeth’s Castle

On a cool but bright February morning a group of 25 set out for Kirkton of Collace, just a dozen miles or so from Perth. Our leader was Allen Bardwell.  The walks took us through farmland to Dunsinane Hill, at just over 1,000 feet and part of the Sidlaws.  The hill is the site of iron age fort and the area is full of history and is of course well known as the supposed site of Macbeth’s Castle. Indeed it is possible to see Birnam wood on a clear day which lies 12 miles to the ESE. After a coffee break at the top of the hill we descended and made our way via Tulloch Ard and Franklyden to Collace, stopping for lunch on route with amazing views over the Firth of Tay and beyond towards the Trossachs. The walk was some 9 miles and everyone appreciated the interesting and varied route that Allen had been able to find.

Cloan Glen

On Sunday 15th April, 28 walkers enjoyed an afternoon's walk from Auchterarder up to Cloan Glen led by Lynn Salvin. The weather was reasonably kind and the showers of late kept away. The route took us up through a well forested Glen with a mix of both conifers and deciduous woodland, with impressive examples of Douglas and Silver Fir. The return route was along a nearby ridge and down to Auchterarder passing close to the grounds of Kincardine Castle. The walk covered around 6 miles and was enjoyed by all as it proved to be new to most of the walkers
