Glass Sponsored Walk 2014

On Sunday 8th June a total of 34 walkers set out, in fine weather, for the Glass Sponsored Walk 2014.

The route started at a public car park near Coynachie and finished – a few hours later – at Glass Hall, where the walkers were served a delicious BBQ alongside home bakes, chocolates and a range of refreshing drinks!

Here are the walkers gathered at the start. ( click on the image for a larger version)
