Members of Tongue Walking Group are thrilled to be able to meet up again following the easing of lockdown restrictions.

The group held its first post-lockdown outing on Wednesday, March 17 - its first since the end of December. Further walks have been held since.

Marion Macdougall, chairwoman of North Coast Connection, which oversees the group, said: "We had four volunteer walk leaders and 11 walkers, making a full permitted total of 15 in the group on the day.

"We met at the Kyle of Tongue Hostel and walked a little way along the Kyle to the woods at Tongue House where there was a lovely display of snowdrops.

"We then walked around a garden at Tongue Mains before walking back to the hostel.

"It was great to see so many joining us."

Ms Macdougall added that North Coast Connection had arranged for Transport for Tongue to provide transport to enable more members to join the walk. Previously transport had been shared, but that is not permitted at present.

Tongue Walking Group hosts weekly walks lasting around an hour and led by trained volunteers. For more information contact Ruth McDonogh 01847 611327.
