Work Party Dates

 

NORTHERN HIGHLANDS

SUILEAG – 9th – 14th June
Contact: Roger Muhl muhlroger@gmail.com
Details: We need five volunteers to work with the three Joint MOs to fix loose stonework on the wall heads inside the bothy together with internal and external pointing. New volunteers and old hands will be welcomed, and training will be provided as required. Sunday the 9th is intended for those wishing to travel at the weekend and work will start in earnest on the Monday morning. Conditions during work will be pretty dusty therefore the bothy will not be available for accommodation. There are camping pitches close to the bothy or, for those willing to commute the two miles up and down the glen each day, there will be indoor accommodation available near Glen Canisp Lodge. Lunch and evening meals will be provided at the bothy Monday to Friday.

If you enjoy working with convivial company in spectacular countryside contact Roger Muhl  to reserve your place or for more information.
