That was an excellent piece you put in Gus, sounded idylic especially the bit about the bag of shit :lol: seriously though it was a great description of the walk in plus some good,if somewhat dirty maintenance when you got there. Well done on the work and the article.

Likewise Jock

See my bit about Rowchoish in SWH&H. I carry shite and the rest to the fire on a spade, blast the spade on the fire to kill everything, then give my hands a right good clean. You never know what might happen....

Just read it there Richard, its a real pain clearing up other folks shite its the worst part of the MO tasks. The upside is the amount of times I've went to the bothy and its spick and span with kindling set in the fire, so not all visitors are dickheads. Just the other week Gaz and myself were up at Invermallie there were 4 in residence and they were great company. Telling tales of their week long trip through knoydart and swapping funny stories about other bothy trips, it fairly lifts your spirits. I hear Mark cottage is looking for a new MO its a fine wee bothy. Hmmm might think about that :wink: :lol:

Aye, tidying up other folks shite is a bit of a recurring theme. And if I'm honest about it then we will probably be doing it for ever as there will always be a new generation that needs to be educated and taught the proper ways to enjoy the outdoors.
Rubbish is always going to end up in bothies and we M.O.s just have to get on with it.
Nice story Richard.
