6 members attended. The group climbed the Cateran Trail to the bealach of An Lairg and followed the undulating ridge over Ben Earb along
to the high point of Meall a' Choire Bhuidhe (868m) then dropped down into Glen Lochsie and walked back to the Spittal along the road from the hotel.
Left cars at 10:30 and returned returned at 17:05 with a couple of long stops to admire the views and chat.
Weather improved as the day went on, a hint of a shower in the morning but didn't come to anything, good views east, not so good west.
Got back to the cars just as the rain came on, good timing! Everyone enjoyed their day out and they had sit-down fish & chips in Blairgowrie on the way home.
14.5km, 790m ascent.
Two of our members, Mel Henderson and Ian Shand were married last week. Many congratulations from all members.
19 members attended. 18:30 start. Carlingheugh Bay sausage sizzle, walking from Victoria Park along Arbroath cliffs. Carolyn had precooked the food. The group made their way to a big log on the beach, used as a bench, and started a fire and used portable BBQs. It was dry, but got chilly about 21:00 when a few folk departed. Last left the beach at 21:30. A very sociable evening with lots of chat.
Meet was cancelled due to bad weather and lack of interest.
3 nights - 25 spaces (full bunkhouse booking)- £59. 21 places already booked (as at 4th May). Booking only open to club members at moment, although several guests have
expressed an interest. Please book by 18th May. Thereafter booking will be open to guests. Neil's contact details are here.
Please note Inverie require a ferry crossing from Mallaig. Ferry times leaving Mallaig to Knoydart are 7.30, 10.30, 14.30 and 18.00. Ferry cost per return is £20. Neil has arranged for the bags to be picked up from both the 10.30 and 14.30 ferries on the Friday and also for bags to be dropped back off at the ferry on the Mon (11.00 ferry). The cost of the baggage transfer will be taken from money taken in by the club as we have more people attending than expected. We are likely to have 4 or 5 members on the 10.30 boat, with most other folk travelling on the 14.30 boat. If you are getting the first (07.30) or last boat you must book but otherwise there should be space as boat takes 81. Neil will give the ferry company advance notice we are coming. You need to be at the ferry at least 15 minutes before it leaves. Baggage will either be picked up in a landrover or car with trailer. You may need to carry your rucksack along on the 14.30 boat with food/holdalls going on the vehicle. Warden's name is Fiona.
Leaving from Myre car park at 07:00 by shared cars. More details later.
