Knoydart, 18-22 August 2016

Fine weather was pre-booked for the club outing to Knoydart where we stayed at the Knoydart Foundation Bunkhouse at Inverie.

Corbetts, Munros, coastal walks, & a bit of deep sea paddling (well up to the ankles at least) were all accomplished by the 6 members present, plus an additional cruise to Mallaig & back to check that the car had actually been locked - it had!

Mother nature decided that fine weather Thurs - Sat was ample and so it was damp outings on Sunday and a damp return on Monday, but considering how we fared on our last trip anything short of a monsoon was a definite bonus. As usual the midge battalions were out in force thus ensuring that the morning getaway was a quick route march to gain some height where a welcome breeze kept the blighters at bay.

Day walk Rhinns of Kells - 14 Aug 2016

5 members of the club (+ Jaffa) enjoyed a good day out along the Rhinns. Meeting at Forrest Lodge we headed up onto Corserine the over Millfie & Milldown and on to Meikle Millea before descending down over Meikle Lump and back to the forest track and the carpark.
