    Default Anybody Up For A Walking Camp This Weekend?

    Just wondering if anyone fancies a wee walk this weekend with Jason and I, looking at starting at Stinchar Falls and walking to Tunskeen bothy (6 miles) then spending the night there. Saturday we'll be walking back down towards Loch Doon to about Carrick Lane (6 miles) then finally Sunday walking back to the car which is about another 6 miles.

    Anyone who wants to come but can't be bothered walking, you can park at the gate at Forrest Drive and it's a 3 mile walk to the bothy although if the gate is open, which I have been told it is due to forrestry work then you can drive further up and it is less than a mile to the bothy.

    Aye mate that would work well, you think it'll be alright to leave the car at Stinchar for a couple of days, never thought about maybe asking John to park at his and doing a kind of backwards version of my route.

    Were you thinking of the car park at the bridge or down the forest road nearer the actual falls?

    The real falls are in the forest,not those beside the road.
