Report
Well done to the more-than- forty folk who ignored the weather forecast and came along to compete at Carberry and who found that the weather, as so often in our wonderful county, was not too bad at all.  Those people who remember back to our regular visits to the Tower area in the past  commented on how good it was to get back into such a nice parkland setting, so thank you to the various landowners who gave us permission.
Sheila

Advance info

The next local event run by ELO is at Carberry,  just south of Musselburgh. Sheila has been working hard getting permission from the seven (so far) landowners involved, updating the map and planning courses.

Registration/starts will be from 1:30 to 2:30 (it is getting dark earlier!). Some of the vegetation differs from what is mapped and so Sheila has planned courses to use the extensive path network. There will be a White (easy and short), Yellow, Orange and Long Orange (not too hard, but much longer – and with some climb).

Come off the A1 Musselburgh by-pass at the junction signed Wallyford and Dalkeith (A6094) and turn south (towards Dalkeith).  It’s 500m to the next roundabout: turn left.  Enter by the North Drive, signed to Carberry Courtyard. Parking will be at Carberry Tower, by kind permission of the Manager.

Carberry Hill is an interesting place, with remnants of the Hill Fort which was then used by Mary Queen of Scots and her army, so try to allow time to go back up the hill to read the notices and explore the earthbanks and depressions, and the views from the top of the hill.
