Scottish news

This year’s Scottish week was at a large Victorian villa in Newtonmore, on the river Spey in the west of the Cairngorms National Park.

Tony’s report: Excellent week in a roomy well-equipped ex-hotel.  Weather far better than last year, good walking every day except one with gales, and even that was good for low-level exploring.  Landscape not the most dramatic, but many new Munros gained on some longish days.  Dry weather previously treated us to dried up bog and easy river crossings.

We broke the mould this year with seven off us taking bikes to make the long hikes in more achievable.  This worked well so probably to be repeated, probably with a more comfy saddle for Adrian……

Nice mix this year of communal cook-ins, and some good food at the local hotel in Newtonmore.
