Covid-19 - getting back outdoors
All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.
Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.
Callender Crags and Bracklin Falls
A moderate walk from the small town of Callander, about 14 miles (30 minutes drive) from the university. The walk climbs through the woods to the north of the town to a memorial to Queen Victoria on Callender Crags, from which there are views to the mountains in the north and over the Forth valley and the Gargunnock Hills to the south. The walk then continues to the Bracklin Falls before returning to Callander on the old railway line.
About 6 miles (10km) (about 4 hours). Max elevation 280 meters.
Terrain / Difficulty
A moderate walk with a steep initial section on a good path through woods which has some exposed rocks higher up. Well made easy graded paths to the falls.
