All over Scotland, Trefoil Guild members are taking part in the Trefoil Walking Festival.
Walks of different levels, from one to two hour local walks to longer rambles have been organised, culminating in a weekend of walking in Pitlochry.
Locally there have been several walks organised and Trefoil Guild members have enjoyed taking part in them.
On a wet morning a group undertook a Heritage Walk in Port Glasgow. They saw some very interesting murals on garage walls and watched The Waverley while they were outside Newark Castle. In the Town Centre they viewed the murals in the station arcade and saw the Girlguiding publicity banner outside New Parish Church. A wet day but a very enjoyable walk.
Later in the week, on a sunny day another group had a walk around Ardmore Point. This walk gave excellent views across the Clyde estuary. They followed the 2 mile circular route and the café at nearby Ardardan Estate which was the ideal location for a light snack. There was great chat and much laughter, and they enjoyed empire biscuits which must go down as the best in Scotland.
Other local walks are planned over the next week.
