The Roy Bridge meet was held at the Climbers' Club hut in the
end, a very comfortable "hut" (actually a modern bungalow) which
has had new carpets fitted and new lounge furniture since my
last visit. The weather was glorious and those attending made
the most of it.
Roger, Malcolm and Bill went to Corrour to climb the Corbett
Leum Uilleim. Rod, Mark, Malena, Viktor, Mod and Tom did the
three Creag Meagaidh Munros, having climbed Stob Coire Sgriodain
and Chno Dearg on the Friday. Jim did Binnein Shios, and Neil,
Alex and Sue climbed Sgurr Mor (Dessary). On Sunday, Viktor,
Mod, Malena and Mark set off for the other side of Loch Treig -
the "Easains", and Bill did Beinn a'Chaorrainn on the way home.

in time for dinner. It was interesting to see Gulvain from the
north as Sue had climbed it 3 weeks earlier on the way to Rum.
From this side, you can appreciate how long that ridge between
the trig point and the summit really is!
On arrival at the hut, a great team effort meant that the table
was set, the rice cooked and the meal served with minimal effort
from me. A pleasant evening was enjoyed by all in the very
comfortable Climbers’ Club hut.
