13 Jan, 2013

Twenty-four members and one guest attended the first Day Meet of 2013. Most were on, or attempted, Lochnagar, one member visited the Sheilin of Mark and quite a few set out for Broad Cairn and/or the Dubh Loch. Two enjoyed exploring the lower hills in and around the Dee valley and the Burn of Vat.


The President’s Party set out for Lochnagar by the “standard route” and four (the President, Secretary, Ian and David) made the summit. The Day Meets Secretary plus five descended into the Glas Allt valley after reaching the plateau and at Glas Allt found themselves in a secret cosy bothy with fire (old Bob Scott’s Stove), free whisky and rum!


Here is a snapshot of the President’s Party day.
