22nd March to 27th March 2015
St Anne's Ramblers use G-Line coaches for their annual trip to Scotand, each year a different destination, joined for most of these years by Fylde Ramblers, and providing different levels of walks on four days.
Ten Fylde Ramblers joined the trip this year, staying at the impressive Crieff Hydro Hotel, set in 900 acres of beautiful Perthshire countryside.
We were remarkably fortunate with reasonable conditions underfoot and warm sunshine and clear skies every day. Just to remind us not to shed our thermals, there was a heavy snowfall in the early hours of Thursday but the winter wonderland swiftly melted away.
