Dry walk!

The weather was kind for an enjoyable walk around Chateaulin and the Aulne river yesterday afternoon. Thanks to Harold for taking the group in my continued absence, and to everyone who came along. Thanks to Chris and Barry for the photo.

Our next walk on September 6th is a fabulous megaliths trail from Erdeven in Morbihan: easy route and a stunning variety of neolithic monuments all along the way.

Chateaulin walk

We have a walk next Tuesday (23rd) in Chateaulin, starting from the Tourist Office (on the quay across the river if approaching from the east) at 2pm. This is an easy walk of 5-6kms, covering some interesting aspects and views of the town as well as a stretch of very pretty riverside walking along the Aulne, and a lock with underground viewing chamber. Bring your visitors along!

Nice day for a walk ....

The weather was kind for a fine walk along the heights of the Monts d'Arrée to the remote village of Tredudon-le-Moine, an important resistance centre in WWII. Many thanks to Harold for leading the walk in my enforced absence, and to all who participated. Also thank you to all who have sent good wishes for me and Tex.

Monts d'Arrée walk - Tuesday 9th August

We have a new and very interesting walk in the Monts d'Arrée on Tuesday, August 9th. This involves a little used track along the heights with fabulous views to the peaks above Le Relec, and then a site of WWII significance.
Meet at the Col de Tredudon on the D36 short-cut over the shoulder of the hills before the TV mast off the main Carhaix/Morlaix route D764 (do not go as far as the roundabout). On the top of the rise there is parking on either side of the road.
Let's hope for a sunny day! The walk starts at 2pm.
