On Friday October 15th, eleven Cairngorm
Club members met up at the Raeburn Hut. They were Joyce
Ritchie, Marj Ewan, Eilidh Scobbie, Ken Thomson, Alec McMillan,
Sandy McIntosh, Roger Houghton, Mike Hewitt, Jim Bryce, Sue
Chalmers and Kevin Kilroy. Bill Morgan also arrived on Saturday
to increase the numbers to twelve.
Eilidh, Marj and Joyce had been staying at Raeburn Hut since
Wednesday as they were using it as a base for "The East Highland
Way". However, having completed that, they were ready for a
weekend of hillwalking.
Sat 16th, South Loch Laggan
Hills (by Marj Ewan)
Sue, Kevin and myself were up at 6am and
set off for the south Loch Laggan hills. I was determined to
suceed on this which was for one reason or another my 4th
attempt to get to the top of Beinn a Chlachair.

We then parted company and Ken and myself
headed down while Kevin and Sue headed for Creag Pitridh. I
waited for Sue and Kevin who arrived back at the car half an
hour after myself and Ken. We headed back and were spoilt by a
lovely meal that eilidh had prepared.
