its a family affair

Didn’t quite get the weather but a treasured moment at the weekend, when my mum made it to her first bothy. Even at 84 she’s still very active, and made impressively short work of the walk in. ¬†We were in luck as a work party was already settled in for the day, lit the stove and had tea and biscuits at the ready. I had to explain that you didn’t get this kind of reception at every bothy you pop into for lunch! Thanks to Eileen and Alistair for buddying us along.
