Newburgh Walking the Marches 2013
Onwards down Coach Road to the river and turning East passing the Yacht Club then inland emerging at Parkhill Steadings skirting Lindores Abbey Ruins.
Approaching the A913 at 1-29 pm.
Skittish Jacobs Sheep unused to such intrusion.
What's going on?
Emerging onto the A913 at 1-34pm
Rounding Cemetery corner....
Another gate to climb.
All over it by 13-41pm
This was 1-43pm and for me it was out of site until 5-13 pm when the more spread out walkers began to arrive for the welcome foods and beverages.in a barn off Woodriffe Road. Only another mile to the end.
After all those fences, gates, ups and downs, the assortment of pies, filled rolls, drinks beckoned.
The last being piped in for a wee bevy.
In line for that welcome replenishment.
Of the walkers were these three year youngsters, Lewis Roper 3 & 10 months and Blair Hain with Sam Green.
Traditionally the youngest and oldest receive a reward,
Jim Davidson aged 79 with the wee ones. A half bottle for Jim and a large box of sweeties for the boys.
Refreshed and off again.
It was all down hill to the railway tunnel and onto the A913.... thence the top park skirting Mugdrum Estate.
A steady line.
A slow descent to the river Tay.
It's amazing how overgrowth can develop in 3 years. The majority bypassed this obstacle.
