Hall Highlights 2000:

Phil Cooper

Made seven trips to Scotland in 2000. Highlights: the Turner Cleuch round with Mary and Alan -five Marilyns making one convenient challenging round, including some unfrequented rough country. Skye at Easter: Scalpay was a good day out, but two walks put off 26 years ago due to bad weather were especially memorable: the Trotternish Ridge with a group of baggers, and completing the ridge as far as Meall na Suiramach with Bert. Sligachan to Marsco, Ruadh Stac and Sgurr na Stri on a good day was as excellent as a walk can be. A bike trip on Raasay was most enjoyable, cycling to the north end of the road then walking on to Beinn na h-Iolaire and the island's northernmost tip. Took a week's holiday for the Hall of Fame weekend at Lochgilphead to include Scarba. Managed the six Glen Luss Grahams on a hot day in eight hours, which is about my limit. Pottered around some Cowal Grahams in poorer conditions. On a five-day December trip to Galloway and East Ayrshire, an icy Cairn Table on a pleasant day was the best of the bunch.
