Roy Bridge bunkhouse meet, 19/20 February ’16

Cerian, Arthur, Kirsty, Mike G, Robin, Mel and Ewen enjoyed a very sociable meet to the Grey Corrie Bunkhouse, which is attached to the Roy Bridge hotel.  Sadly, the weather didn’t co-operate; as there had been several avalanches the week before, and the risk was still Considerable, we had two low level walks.

Invermallie was the objective for Saturday; conditions were OK at low level, and we walked to the top of the glen and back with a stop at the bothy – pictured – in each direction.  We were pleased to see that the MBA have kept the bothy in good condition, and the walk of 23km was enough to justify an excellent meal in the Stronlossit hotel, with some well-kept beer too.

On Sunday, we went east to try and avoid the bad weather coming from the west.  The tactic didn’t work this time, but we had a very pleasant wander from Dalraddy caravan site up to the Duke of Gordon’s memorial.
