Archery at the Hunting Lodge

Nigel, Jan, Helen and Chris have been staying at a superb Lodge near Kingussie. They have had a couple of great days skiing. Nigel and Chris have had a good day on the hill too but unfortunately on Thursday the weather was just too bad for their attempt on Cairngorm and Ben Macdui so we had a fun session of Archery for all the family in the grounds of the Lodge instead. We were quite sheltered from the worst of the weather although it did get chilly and eventually rain stopped play. They were all quite addicted and were keen to compete against each other. I hope Chris and Helen did do the washing up!!

Creag Dubh Newtonmore

Always one of our favourite hills, even better when the weather is not so good. It is an interesting snow pack this year and layers were sliding with minimal effort in places when we started digging to see waht was happening.
