INFO FOR NEW MEMBERS AT FOOT OF THIS PAGE


Our latest ramble took place on Sunday 23rd November when approx 20 ramblers were treated to great sunny weather while walking around paths and roads surrounding the rolling hills of the Sperrins through the waymarked Vinegar Hill route. All photos on this page from this outing.


Our next  ramble is Meenard Mountain in the Sperrins on Saturday November 29th.

Our next Sunday ramble is to Buncrana on December 7th where we will walk the Swan Park route and Buncrana shore path walk.
Swan Park occupies a delightful riverside site on the edge of Buncrana. The Buncrana Shore-path is a traffic free walk which follows the shoreline of Lough Swilly between Buncrana and Stragill Strand. It is a gently undulating path which passes quiet beaches, old forts and a number of sites of historic interest.

The Branny Ramble Walk at Ballygawley on Saturday 13th December starts at the 'President Grant Heritage Centre'. It is a Grade C walk as the entire walk is on roadway or paths. The walk is about 6.5 miles long with a couple of hills neither of which is very challenging. Walking shoes would be suitable for walking

 On Sunday 21st December Omagh town circuit we have discussed the possibility of finishing the walk with the Historical Tour of Omagh and hiring a Guide.  For this service a £2.00 donation is expected from each participant (and please bring a £2.00 coin as there will be no change available)
