We celebrate our return to the hills by walking our popular Holly Walk.
Meeting at the old Glena Galt railway station at 10:00 we begin our circular walk by taking the minor lane Northwards into the Glena Galt valley. We then reach the well known well which has medicinal properties and we all will have a drop of the water. Onwards we come to Brigid’s sheep farm where Brigid will give a short talk about the history and artifacts in the area. Having cut our holly we walk through Brigid’s land up to Glena Galt mountain and continue or circular walk till we arrive back at our cars by the old station.
Afterwards we will be having soup and sandwiches at Fitzgeralds, the Junction bar, Camp. Note that due to Covid 19 restrictions there is only room for 12 people at the moment. It may be possible to book extra individual places that morning.
