Glen Domhain sponsored walk

The afternoon of Sunday 17th June saw an intrepid 15-strong band of walkers gathered in the Kilmelford Church car park. Soon they were off, with expert guide Hamish MacNicol in the lead, to find their way to the head of Glen Domhain, a little-visited but spectacularly beautiful part of Netherlorn. Gradually they made their way down the glen with frequent stops to take account of geology, wildlife, history, and land-management, not to mention magnificent views out to the Paps of Jura. Smoke rising from the barbecue at Turnalt Farm spurred them on their way in the last stretches and soon they were tucking into top-class burgers and sharing their story with others who had not been able to tackle the long walk but were keen to join in the fun. Some walkers were sponsored, raising a total of £410 for the Craignish Church Restoration Appeal and further funds for the Bemvu Fund for work with our partner congregation in Malawi. All in all, it was a day which lifted our hearts.
