Thursday Walk:   8th February

12 miles

"After having had a most agreeable Kelly Cut Walk a week last Saturday, the plan is that we do a variant of it. We catch the 8:40 am ferry to Wemyss Bay, follow the Kelly Cut thru to Cornalees, and after lunch at the cafe,, go on to Drumfrochar & Greenock via Dunrod Hill and Scroggy Bank, finishing in Weatherspoons, for those wanting further sustenance etc. It also gives me a chance to pick up my other boots from the cobblers."
