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)
Along the route we had some fine views. We stopped for some lunch too!
Below some GPS Information kindly provided by Ted Andrews.
