Walk and BBQ

August 19

As already advertised the annual B.E.G. BBQ will take place on Saturday 19th August. The original plan was to have the BBQ at the head of the Manor Valley but on reflection and considering the difficult logistics and the likelihood of midges, it will be held in in Graham Little’s back garden in Peebles. The address is 2 Frankscroft, Peebles, EH45 9DX (our house is in upper Frankscroft, beyond the fence with the 1-11 Frankscroft sign). There is plenty of parking on Chambers Terrace (a very wide road) and some just beyond the 1-11 Frankscroft sign. So, the plan for the day is:

Before 1000 – meet at the parking area at the end of the Manor Valley tarmac road (map reference NT198 286) – limited parking so car sharing from Peebles makes sense.

1000-1330 – walk the Manorhead hill round including Dollar Law, 817m (take a drink and a light snack plus full hillwalking kit)

1430 – whenever – BBQ in Graham’s back garden

IMPORTANT NOTES:

1) Graham can give up to three people a lift from Peebles to the start of the walk but they need to be in Peebles by 0930 latest.
2) Please bring your own bottle to the BBQ.
3) Graham will provide food BUT HE NEEDS CONFIRMATION OF NUMBERS – if you are attending please let Graham know by e-mail by Thursday 17th August latest
4) Graham’s land line is 01721 723861
5) Frankscroft is on the south side of the river. From the High Street, cross the Tweed then turn immediately right onto Caledonian Road (passing the Ambulance and Fire Stations), then turn first left up Frankscroft (steep hill) to the top.
