Nine Maidens Walk 2011

This Year's Nine Maidens Walk will be on Sunday 12 June.

The walk this year will be from Denview, Glenogilvy to Easter Denoon via the gate near the Haining.  If you want to do the full walk, meet at Denview between 1 and 1.30pm for a 1.30 departure.  You can also leave from Easter Denoon at the same time and walk up to the bridge from there.  The plan is that the groups will be at the bridge for a dram at 3pm.  After that everyone will walk to Easter Denoon then go by car to the new Eassie Hall for a light buffet and some entertainment.

If you want to take part contact Neil at 01307840520 or e-maail at

November Snow

Heavy snow has hit the Glen this week and our feathered friends need help with feeding.  Hugh had a robin sitting on his arm and the woodpecker has visited Mike and Pam. The garden birds are having to compete with game birds for access to the feeders.  make sure you keep putting out feed as the birds expect it to be there when they get to the feeders.


Relations of wartime pilot crash victim traced.

Relations of the unfortunate pilot F/Sgt Kenneth George Mayne RAF (VR), who was killed on Gallow Hill on 23 June 1945 when his plane crashed in poor visibility have been traced and a photograph of F/Sgt Mayne obtained.

Nigel Vague, who's mother is a first cousin of the pilot, contacted me with some information and a photograph of F/Sgt Mayne.


The photograph is attached and full information will be available on a slide show attachment soon.

Nine Maidens' Day Festival 13 June 2010

On Sunday 13 June, a small band of 9 Glenners and friends left Glenogilvy and walked up to the march fence that runs between Auchterhouse Hill and Ark Hill, the boundary between the Glen and Denoon.  At the bridge near there they met up with friends from the Eassie and Denoon communities to enjoy a welcoming 'dram' from the Nine Maidens Quaich, before setting of to visit the ruins at 'the Haining' for a short talk on the site by David Orr.

After the talk, the group walked down the hill to Wester Dennon where they were given information about marriage stones.

They then made their way to Earter Dennon and the Nine Maidens' Feast that was provided by John, Jane and the kind folks from ENKCA.

A great day was had by all and £300 was raised to go towards the new Eassie Hall Fund.

Well done everyone and thanks for your hospitality ENKCA.

Our turn (Glenogilvy) next year. 

The Nine Maidens' celebration will take place on Sunday 12 June, the nearest Sunday to Nine Maidens Day which is on 15 June.
