January’s Walk – Portsoy – CANCELLED

I regret to inform you that due a number of reasons including the poor weather forecast (according to BBC Weather, it will be rather cold and very wet) I have decided to cancel the walk in Portsoy tomorrow, Saturday 26 January. As most of you are aware, I would not take the decision lightly to cancel any walk, but balancing the cancellations and the weather I feel that this is the best option.
I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused.
