The October meeting of the club saw 17 members head to Glen Lednock near Comrie, the starting point for the walk up Ben Chonzie 931 mts.

From the parking area at Coishavachan a track was followed north easterly to its end at 800 mts then following the fence line to the summit.

The return route was in a westerly direction for 2km to join the Glenalmond track leading back to the starting point

On the outset of the walk a lone walker from the Fife area who had inadvertently got the wrong starting point from his group asked to join us for the day and thoroughly enjoyed his day.

The 10 miles hike was covered in good dry conditions taking 6 hrs approx
