Rambling Around Town

Group of ramblers at the Craws Nest

HUNDREDS of walkers from groups across the North-east have descended on Stonehaven for their 30th Ramblers Rendezvous.

The event is organised by the Grampian 50+ Network, who masterminded two days of activities (on Wednesday and Thursday) from guided walks around the town, to arts and crafts and bowling.

Provost Howatson and Councillor Dickinson attended the launch of the event to welcome the visitors to the town, and even joined in with the pre-walk warm up.

Several walking routes of varying length and difficulty were offered with members of Stonehaven Ramblers acting as hosts and guides – one highlighted the geological interest at Cowie, another toured the areas tended by the Horizon Group, while another took the visitors to Cheyne Hill.

Stonehaven Ramblers

Stonehaven has a thriving rambling club, who offer a programme of walks throughout the year, travelling to areas of interest throughout the North-east. Non-members are welcome to turn up and join in on the day.

Grampian 50 + Network

The Grampian 50 + Network was established over twenty years ago to create opportunities for older people to lead more active, stimulating and rewarding lives.
