Well what a day - Club Weekend in Auchnasheen

Anne, Jim, Brian , Andy, Jim and i

Accommodation - Ledgowan Lodge ( bunkhouse) Kitchen and one shower was a bit compact for the 10/13 of us however we organised it well . Great social weekend too

We took the bikes for this however we pushed them most of the way to the bridge, great for coming down if you are unlike me you only started riding a bike last year :roll:

This was a long day adding Maoile Lunndaidh ( 12 hrs)

So as you can imagine when we hit the bikes it was dark . The path at first is very rocky initially but then has a smooth road back to car .
I , was traumatised with this experience :lol: however at least this particular day will be memorable.

I hated it the first time, when I missed the other top...

On my return to catch the missed top (revision proofing) it was a grand day out!
