In celebration of the shortest day Annan Harbour Action Group is planning a torchlight walk from Barnkirk Point at Newbie, Waterfoot up into Annan Harbour for food, hot drinks and some seasonal music from Annan Town Band, on the early evening of Friday 21st December. The torches will symbolise bring the flame from a Yule log, kindled out on the shore as the solstice sun sets, into the Harbour to light a quayside brazier to warm the assembled participants.

An ATI shuttle bus will transport walkers to the Annandale Way Cairn at Newbie Barns from the junction of the High Street and Port Street from 4.00pm, and will run continuously until 5.15pm. Walkers are invited to muster at Barnkirk Point for a hot drink and to light their torches from the bonfire in time to begin the 2 mile walk into Annan at 5.30pm. The music will begin at 6.30pm when hot food and drinks will be served.
