Happy Christmas to all.

Thanks to all for reading the Blog have a great Christmas and spare a thought for all those working today. The Landing lights were on for Santa ready to arrive as two young girls get more excited.

All ready for Santa’s visit.

Last nights quote “ I cannot get to sleep I am so excited” I bet most of us remember that feeling? How many of us remember feeling that excited.

It was lovely to hear from so many past and present friends and get the odd tale and story. It’s so important to stay in touch and get those tales out.

From Roy

“A very happy Christmas to you Heavy. I so enjoy reading your blog as I am sure many other people do. Exactly 40 years ago today, as a very young 18 YO, I was the designated Christmas cook for KMRT staying at Dundonnell (so much for the Team Leader taking his turn!). I will never forget seeing An Teallach in all her winter glory and learning ice axe arrest techniques on her slopes with Gus Tait and Keith Powell (RIP). Great times and ones that I will never forget.
