Members and Guests: Al Metelko, Ann Woolley, Chris Ivory, Matthew Taylor, Bridget Mapleson, Craig Marsden


Two carloads headed north on a fine Friday night on a promise of a multitude of magnificent mountaineering options. On Saturday morning the Meet Leader was charged with the awesome responsibility of deciding what everybody else was going to do for the day. An early start was foiled partly by a luxurious lie-in on rock hard bunks and partly whilst we waited for Craig "Fartin' aboot like a fairy" putting his contacts in.

The chosen route was the round of the Corryhully horseshoe from Glenfinnan which has, allegedly, very fine views northwards into Knoydart. The weather totally failed to clear up for the entire 13 miles/2 Munros. The walk will be remembered (if at all) for driving drizzle and soggy snow. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, especially Matt who took this ideal opportunity to break in his brand spanking new Scarpa Fitzroys (and his feet).

Sunday; cloud base 100 feet, raining, Nevisport, home.

Roll on summer
