Innerdownie

On the Sunday after the AGM (November 6th) a group started from the Castlehill Reservoir near the Yetts of Muckart on a walk led by Trevor Abell.  We were blessed with perfect weather - a lucky break from all the cloud and rain of recent weeks. The walk ran through Woodlands Trust land alongside Glenquey Reservoir and used part of the Reservoir Path that runs through land managed by the Forestry Commission and the Woodland Trust. The walk involved a steep climb up to the ridge than runs more gently up to the highest point of Innerdownie (611 metres), where lunch was takn in the remains of an old bothy.  Views were possible over the Firth of Forth, the Lomonds and the Grampians. A gentle circular downward path took the group back down to the side of the Glenquey and a return to the cars. The walk was just 6 miles, taking a total of 4.5 hours.
