7 members departed from Broxden at 8am. The original route was planned for Ardtainaig but changed to the Pentland Hills due to a poor forecast in the West. The start was from Flotterstone car park taking a westerly path to Carnethy Hill (573m) via Turnhouse Hill. Strong gusting winds on the tops made standing upright a challenge so we descended to the col below Scald Law and on down to Loganlea Reservoir. We finally returned by road to the car park running beside Logan burn and Glencorse reservoir.

Well earned refreshments were taken at the conveniently situated Flotterstone Inn
