Organ Recital by Prof. Murray Campbell at 4pm
Tea/Coffee and Chat at 5pm
Outdoor Covenanter Service at Harbour Craig – Walk starts at 5.30pm
A warm welcome will be given to everyone who would care to join in one or all events.
Carlops Church is holding a Flower Festival on the last weekend in June.
To conclude the festival there will be an organ recital by Prof. Murray Campbell, our session clerk and organist, at 4pm and this will be followed by tea/coffee at 5pm.
At 5.30pm we will start from the car park opposite the church to walk to Harbour Craig, which is a rocky outcrop about 2 miles south of the village of Carlops. At Harbour Craig there is a cave once used as a refuge for the Covenanters fleeing after the battle of Rullion Green in the Pentland Hills in 1666. At Harbour Craig a short service will be conducted.
From Carlops, thewalk consists of a mile and a half long car track followed by a half mile walk over very rough and sometimes marshy hillside. (The midges can be very bad and some sort of protection such as cream or a hat is advisable!) The walk gives a chance to chat and to enjoy the beautiful countryside. Dogs on leads are invited along with their owners!
We would be delighted to welcome visitors who wish to share one, or all, of these events with us.
