Walk about Comrie - Mor Beinn and Ben Halton
Sun 20 November 2016, 10:00 – 16:30 GMT
Join me for a lovely walk up two local hills behind Comrie. Mor Bheinn and Ben Halton have great views to the Trossach hills of Ben Vorlich and Meall Na Fearna and across to Glen Artney as well as over Comrie and Strathearn.
There is a chance we may see wild goats, red deer and kites.
This walk of 14 kilometres ( 8.5 miles) climbing to 640 metres is partly on good tracks and partly on rougher deer tracks.
Are there any age limits to taking part?
If you are under 18 years of age you need to have a responsible adult with you. This is not advised for children under 14 years of age.
How fit do I need to be?
You should be comfortable walking for a few hours; be able to cover around 3 miles on level ground in an hour; be fit enough to go up flights of stairs easily and take part in regular physical activity several times a week. Sometimes the ground is uneven so it helps to be comfortable walking off tracks as well as on tracks.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is available off School Road by the Primary School. This is where we will meet and share transport to the start of the walk.
Number 15 bus from Perth to Comrie
What should I bring ?
Ensure you have everything for a day on the hills. Comfortable walking trousers( no jeans); Hiking boots ; Waterproof jacket and trousers; Spare layer ( fleece or similar); Hat and gloves; Packed lunch; Water and hot drink; Walking poles recommended. Speak to Fran if you have any queries about what to bring.
Carry everything in a rucsac with a waterproof liner inside it. Dry bags for keeping gear waterproofed are recommended.
What happens if the weather is bad?
In the event of bad weather or snow an alternative walk will be offered that will be of a similar length but lower down and Fran will buy everyone a cuppa at the end!
