Doune Castle Mountain Club walked from Doune Castle to the Peak District, and…..
caught the bus back. In lovely warm sunshine today (Monday), the two members of Doune Castle Mountaineering Club set off for the Peak (the sports centre in Stirling). Following delightful country lanes and less delightful urban streets, the intrepid “mountaineers” arrived at the Peak, covering the 10.5 miles in around 4 hours. Hunger for paths rather than roads led to the only “adventure” – an unmapped path was taken following the River Allan towards the River Forth. However, insurmountable obstacles prevented access to the road at the required point. Fortunately, a friendly householder opened her garden gates, and a lengthy detour was avoided.
So, that’s a contribution of 21 miles on the opening day of the 50th Challenge Walking Week, with an outing that, hopefully, satisfied all the rigorous challenge criteria!

As is often the case with messages I post on this board, I can only find this one using search – I can’t see it or the attached pics on the message threads. Is it there – can someone confirm? ThanksJuly 18, 2017 at 4:18 am #5716
Hi Russ. As far as I know, the CMC Message Board has been
working well since we changed web hosting providers at the
end of June from Silicon Dales to Digital Nomads. Your
message about the Doune Castle walk, and the accompanying
photos can be found on the Message Board. In fact I am
replying to it now. The only thing that has not been sorted
out yet is the link which appears in each notification email
sent out when someone puts up a new topic or a reply to an
existing one. These links are supposed to take you to to
corresponding page on the Message Board but at the moment
are not working. Digital Nomads are investigating this. However
everything which should be on the Message Board is (unlike
the unsatisfactory situation before we changed web
companies). Regards, Andy. 18 Jul 2017
