Good job Sue & I did a brief recce on monday about a potential new starting point for this walk:

Bad News....the Jardim do Largo de Republico in Silves is a building site...no Jardim, no square and no roads!

Good news....plenty of space by the Tributo Cafe nearby .Old hands may recall it as a cafe to start this walk, but it closed about 3 years ago. It is now open , about a month ago, and not only is it an ideal starting point.

Please note new starting point....revised directions above.

Weather update......it's very misty here, but forecast looks good for the morning in Silves, so walk is definitely ON.....wouldn't be too surprised at the odd drizzle, so some rainwear might be prudent.....at least the recent rain will have consolidated the scree!
