We stopped just before Murla to look around the deserted restraurant. It opened about a year ago, and cost €1 million. The owner was not "legal" and it was eventually closed down and he was bankrupt. The place is now abandoned.
From Murla we took the road to Orba Castle
The road comes to an abrupt end, and provides a lovely view towards Orba
David and Rosemary as we start to climb
The first part of the walk is over large rocks, and it was this part we wanted to check would be OK for the Monday Club
We soon join the track we usually use
Pat just before reaching the top
There is always plenty of choice of good picnic site at the top
Rosemary and Jan at the top
David did tell me the name of these butterflies, but I have forgotten. Orba Castle seems to be a favourite with them, as we saw them last time as well.
Taking a well deserved rest
Back in the vally, its a long, but easy, walk back to Parcent
Back home, what better than a nice cup of tea!
