Today was my first ever ‘Cowalfest’ walk, guided by John Ferguson.
A walk I’ve been wanting to do for years but never had the time or quite sure of an exact route.
Six keen walkers turned up to be guided to the crash site of the B29 Bomber. The Flying Fortress came down after clipping a nearby summit due to whats is thought to have been icing of the wings. This was back in 1949.
The walk it’s self was great…..forest roads, tracks, burn crossings, waterfalls, open hillside and that all important crash site.
Below are photos taken en route to the crash site,the site it’s self and a few returning via the same route.
A big thanks to John and Robert for their guidance on the walk and the organisers of Cowalfest.
