Meet Report

5th to 7th August 2005 - Jock Spot's

After early arrivals had fought their way through the waist high grass and cleaned up all the mouse droppings in the kitchen we settled in for a cosy night. Actually, exceedingly cosy as Albert had the fire on which cranked the temperature up to tropical levels. Perusal of the hut book revealed that club had last been here in November 2000.

Saturday was a day of sunshine & showers with a strong and fairly cold wind. Keith, Nicola, Albert, Claire and myself did Stob Poite Coire Adair and Carn Liath. Rather foolishly, they put me in charge of the tea stops and so I took full advantage. We spent so long drinking tea that Claire went on without us! Meanwhile, Steph did the circuit of Creag Pitridh, Geal Carn and Beinn a Chlachair, Hywel biked in to Geal Carn and Meall na h-Aisre and Alison & Kenny went cycling around Ardverikie.

The whole of Saturday evening was spent eating the four course communal meal.

Sunday looked okay weather-wise but a few folk headed straight home anyway. Hywel went Corbett bagging and Kenny & Alison were still undecided as they climbed into the car. Claire and I had an excellent day on Gairbeinn and Corrieyairack Hill. We were rewarded with fantastic views westward to Loch Garry, Glen Shiel and Knoydart and after lunch the sun came out.
