There were 21 members on today’s walk, it was cold with
wintery showers early on but brightened up as the day progressed. We had intended
to have a toilet stop in Ballater, unfortunately they were closed but should
have been open at 8am!! Jules, our bus driver, took us to the toilets at
Crathie which were open. 19 members left the bus for the main walk, while 2
members went back to Ballater to do shorter alternatives. Most members went to
the top of the Coyles, where the local firemen were on an exercise using all
terrain vehicles. One member had slipped and injured her Achille’s heel, this slowed
down her descent. We were three quarters of an hour later in leaving Ballater
while waiting for everyone to return. Fiona
