ADRC Sanquhar to Welltrees Tappin. June 2012

Starting out on a dry morning.

That sooned changed

Todays group in the gloom.

The pilot was demoted today to "Navigator"
Ayr and District Ramblers met at Sanquhar today for an 8 mile circular walk to Welltrees Tappin Hill (473M). Fourteen of us started out on a dry cloudy morning but not very far into the walk on came the rain light drizzle at first but once we were in the Brown Hill forest it decided to pour down on the walkers.. In the true spirit of things we donned our waterproofs and trudged on through some boggy tussoky ground until we cleared the forest the going became a wee bit easier until we reached the summit Bad light today so quality of photography was very poor hence the lack of photos. Lunch in the rain was enjoyed by all looking out at hills in the distance with sunshine on them. Eventually it dried up and we arrived on  the Southern Upland Way to take us back down to the village giving the walkers time to dry off. A good walk led by the pilot in somewhat difficult conditions.


  1. Well done to the "Navigator" for keeping you all together. Me and the Cumnock member have talked of walking from Sanquhar. Maybe we should wait for the summer.............can you remember what day it's supposed to be ?

    1. Hopefully 2 weeks on Saturday when we do "Haggis Hill"
