A run from Dreghorn, Edinburgh City Bypass to Seahouses then take a boat trip to Farne Islands. The boat trip lasts 2hrs 30mins and includes a 1hr landing and we would hope to encounter the sea birds and grey seal colonies. Please bring warm, waterproof clothing. Should the weather be inclement on the day we will look at the option of swapping the boat trip for a visit to Bamburgh Castle or Lindisfarne.
