This week Clare walks with the Forfar Ramblers in Angus, Scotland.
Clare walks visits eastern Scotland to join Evelyn Taylor and friends at the Forfar ramblers. This walking club has developed into a social and supportive group, embracing retirement and the freedom it brings.
Today's trip is typical for the Forfar ramblers: scenic but not too challenging, with views of beautiful Glen Esk. Well signposted all the way.
