The expedition starts and finishes at Hairmyers train stations
Drop off by Parents
Date: Saturday 23rd April
Place & Train times: Train stations Hairmyres 9.01, ( they must not miss this)
All Group will get on the train to central and then get the 9.57 train to wemyss bay from central
Will get off at Drumfrochar where the leaders will meet them and hand out the kit supply by leaders (so leave room in rucksack)
(There is only a ticket machine at Hairmyres so you may wish to consider going to Clarkston ticket office before the Saturday and get a return from Hairmyres to Wemyss Bay for the Saturday and Sunday but it is entirely up to you.)
Pick up by Parents
Date: Sunday 24th April
Time: your explorers will phone you to tell what train they are on
We hope they will get the 12.50 train from Wemyss Bay (they will eat their lunch on the train so must have packed for this) arriving at central @ 13.39 & then the train to Hairmyres @ 13.48 getting in at Hairmyres @ 14.17.
But there is no guarantee of this as this will depend on when they set off from camp in the morning and how quickly they walk.
