Burns Supper at Morvich Centre, Kintail, 22/23rd January ‘16

On Saturday Richard H and Robin went up Glen Lichd and over the watershed to Camban bothy which, given the unseasonably mild weather, was several degrees colder inside than it was outside. Thanks to all that melting snow the waterfalls at the head of G. Lichd were looking pretty good though.

Given the weather forecast, Cerian, Mel, Annie, Michael and Ewen went for the coastal option and walked from Glenelg to Totaig, which is at the end of the Ratagan road.  Great walk at the Glenelg end, but very wet underfoot at the other end; best to do a circuit back to Glenelg!

A very convivial evening was had back at the well equipped Morvich Centre.  We were well fed with cock-a-leekie soup, haggis neeps & tatties and various sweets, and Robin regaled us with his version of the address to the haggis.

Sunday dawned wet and blustery so Mike G, Cerian, Gina and Alan decided on a visit to the Falls of Glomach via the Bealach na Sroine.  Fortunately the rain turned out to be only light and intermittent and even stopped for an hour while we had lunch at the top of the Falls, which were suitably impressive following the wet weather and recent snow melt.  Returned the same way making a pleasant 8 mile round trip.  Cerian tried out her anemometer on the 500m bealach where apparently we were subject to a bracing force 6 breeze.
