June meet

FORFAR and district Hillwalking Club travelled to the NTS Outdoor Centre in Kintail for their June weekend meet.

Three members set off on Thursday from Cluanie Inn to walk into the remote Alltbeithe hostel in Glen Affric.

On Friday they had a big day climbing three of the more remote hills in this area before walking back out and joining the rest of the group at Kintail. The weather was mixed and various walks were planned including the Five Sisters, Ben Fhada, several Corbetts and Grahams from Glen Elchaig and a more leisurely walk to the Falls of Glomach.

The next meet is the meet secretary’s ‘Mystery meet’ on Sunday, July 8. Members should check the website for details: www.fdhwc.org


Fishing ‘dour’

THE NUMBER of anglers out on Lintrathen recently has been on the sparse side. There is no doubt that the weather has played a big part in this. Anglers who have ventured out on the better days have come off and described the fishing as “dour”. Midge tip lines have done well using buzzers, dark nymphs and gold head damsels when the fish have been interested.

Club results: James Hutton Institute, five boats, 10 fish for 14lbs 8ozs; Canmore AC, four boats, eight for 13lbs 8ozs; ABC&D Club, five boats, 18 for 29lbs 4ozs; Perth Ex-Servicemen, four boats, 10 for 8lbs 2ozs. Individual boats: W. Brown and D. Forsyth, five for 7lbs 10ozs; Jim and Dave Moncur, six for 10 lbs; T. Melville and R. Malkowski, eight for 14lbs 8ozs; Ernie McKay and partner, five for 7lbs 4ozs; A. McAlister four for 7lbs.
