Loved this report and the photos.
Wish I had used a camera more in those days.
Youth of today laugh when you talk about wool and cotton. Knitting, what's all that about?
I looked in the Hutchinson Mem Hut back in 1973 - it was awful. We moved on!

This looks amazing - looking forward to having another look at it when we've more time. A really unusual angle on walking in the Cairngorms, and some lovely photos. Congratulations on the prize! And keep playing that viola!

Best wishes,

Daniel and Clare
