November Weekend to Killin

Unfortunately Jean and Tom called off due to Tom having a virus.  On Friday, Allan and I drove to Balquhidder and climbed The Stob.  Steven and Hilary drove up to Killin, as did Justin, after work. Andrew and Ann had booked in at the hotel at Crianlarich, but joined us in the evening for dinner.

On Saturday, Allan, Steven, Justin and I climbed Beinn Ghlas and Ben Lawers.  The surrounding hills were covered in cloud but we were in sunshine.  At the summit of Ben Lawers we all had plenty of opportunities to get photos of brocken spectres.  Hilary climbed the local hill Sron a’Chlachain at Killin.  Andrew and Ann spent the day touring to Tyndrum, Dalmally and Connel.  In the evening we again met up for dinner, drinks and conversation.

On Sunday, Allan and I climbed Meall Buidhe (Glen Ogle) after which we drove home.  Justin climbed Stuchd an Lochain.  Steven and Hilary did a nice edge of estate walk on the south banks of the Tay at the back of Killin with lovely views of the Munros we climbed the previous day. Andrew and Ann did a low level walk around Loch Tay before heading home.

Again it was a good weekend.  The hotel rooms were good as was the food.  The weather on the Saturday was super and we couldn’t have asked for a better day’s walk.

Kelvin Article

An old friend of ours, and of the Club .. Barbara Douglas .. was clearing out her loft and came across a number of SSEB "Kelvin" magazines from the 50's and 60's.

Barbara's father, Bob Douglas, was in Education and Training in those days .. the Kelvin magazine became "SSEB News" in later years ....

Please click on the pic above to read an interesting article from the Jan-Mar issue of 1968 ......
