Update 07/12/19 - David Rhind has passed on the following information:

"Anyone getting the 47 bus will have to get off at Lidl's store and then walk round to the Crown Inn as the 47 goes up Kirkhill. For information, the Ranger is off sick so unable to get tour round Upper Pond, also the Chinese bridge is getting renovated so I'll  take the group up to Folly instead
