A puzzle from Roger who asked if any member could identify the plaque below left.
Mick identified it as being by the road above Loch Tulla and is built with 795 stones, one from the summit of every Munro and Munro top.

Evening walk around Silverdale

With the lovely warm and sunny weather continuing into June, seven members met up at Woodwell in Silverdale for a short walk round the wells of Silverdale hoping to find some orchids. Peter led the group over The Lots to Eaves Wood, returning via The Row and Burton Well where the Ladies Slipper orchid was over. The return to Woodwell was via Scot Wood - below - where the only orchids seen were Common Spotted. The evening was rounded off with drinks in the ever quirky Woodlands Hotel with beer at £2.70 a pint. Thanks Peter for another interesting walk.
