Excellent venue, excellent weekend.
There was an enjoyable start to the weekend with the boardwalk on stilts in the dark and the welcoming lights of the Hut some distance away. A most pleasant comfortable Hut with guitar included. Everyone enjoyed a few songs from Craig!

Saturday was busy with members hitting the hills. One group set off from Craig on bikes to claim the distant Maoile Lunndaidh. Trish took same route but dropped off to enjoy the peace and tranquility of two Corbetts.
The other group of four headed to Torridon with Beinn Eighe as an objective. Paul and Wendy ascended Sail Mhor by a superb scramble, Ling and Glovers route then continued to the first summit to rendezvous with Craig and Gavin who had intended climbing a route on the Triple Butress. The four then continued on to the second summit descending via the Black Carl’s to Kinlochewe where a car had been left.
Sunday dawned with a wet forecast. Jeff went off to claim Fionn Bheinn for a second. Paul, Craig, Graham and Wendy headed for a climb session at Moy via Strathpeffer railway cafe for bacon rolls. Two routes were climbed before torrential rain necessitated a retreat and soup at Tiso!
