I've just about recovered from a fantastic weekend in Glen Shiel organised by Brucey, who's back in the UK from Australia for a few weeks.  There were 20+ of us up there, and as anticipated most of us spent far more time drinking and eating than hillwalking.  Our hosts at the Kintail Lodge Hotel really looked after us well and I'd heartily recommend the place in the future.  It wasn't just us debaucherous mountaineering types staying at the hotel though - as the scanned room list opposite shows, even peers of the realm find a warm welcome waiting at Shiel Bridge!

Thanks to all who made the (often very long) journey up north to join in the fun, the large numbers helped make it a really enjoyable weekend.  Some photos are already online over at Flickr - if you have any more (especially from late on Saturday night after I fell asleep) be sure and pass them on.
