Strathrory 03

Cycle run through Strathrory with the Bible Class

Saturday 15th February 2003

This was a beautiful day – the sun kept shining and you could even feel its warmth. I really enjoyed the cycle, the day and the company. Thank you everyone who came along. Eleven of us cycled from the church at Rosskeen up to Ardross, through Strath Rory to Aldie and then back to the church on the Scotsburn Road.

Strathy at last – meet up with Aileen

the downhill at last – Cromarty Firth ahead



looking out to the Soutars of Cromarty, Ben Rhinnes can be just made out



looking at Geordie’s grave – a dog killed in a road accident 1923



Geordie’s wee stone



we had to go careful here – very frozen, that’s Carina right on the junction



after 20 miles – maybe we shouldn’t have done it ! only Lance could cycle it back !
