Walk description:
The walk started at the Kingsmeadows car park Peebles. A lovely clear, wind still and crisp sunny day with the last of the Autumn colours. What a change from the storm Angus on Monday evening and Tuesday. The party of ten set out across the Priorsford Bridge via the Gytes and up Janets's Brae with a short stop at the site of the Iron Age dwelling. Then on to the Blue Walk leaving Janet's Brae to walk through the woods round to the Buzzard's Nest Car Park. The Red Squirrel Walk, skirting the site of an Iron Age fort, took them down through the woods to the Glentress Centre for lunch. Some had hot Carrot and Corriander soup with their picnic lunch. Then a walk along the railway path back to Peebles. The map measures 6 miles but there was no hurry to get back. The walk was lead by Gerard Bakker
