Not for the faint of heart this is the real survivors season end bash for all non-lightweights and lovers of the wilds.
Shitty weather a hopeful bonus ;cause this is when the whold character of this place comes alive and burns into your sole, let alone your memory.
Think 'Hound of the Baskervilles', '39 Steps' and you're right on the money 'cause this is straight out a Connon Doyle or John Buchan (it actually features in one of his) novels. However sometimes 'Dog Soldiers' or 'American Werewolf in London' also springs to mind
Fishing is on a host of waters from the major expedition (of which there are loads) through to roadside troot burns or lochans. From the mighty Shin or Badenloch through to the scattering of moorland lochans worthy of a cast or two as you pass.

Anyway digs are between the Cottage (bunkhoose) not selubrious but full of character (sleeps 12), Hotel for those who can't stand the snoring, Caravan (wait 'til you see the Sandy 'n Stavross's Keba Van, brilliant

We're looking at Wednesday 28th Sept through to Mondy 3rd Oct for this one (or anything in between if this is too long for you, although Friday and Saturday are the big nights.
So there you have it guys, get those broonie points racked up now 'cause yer gonna need em.
Who's up for this?
Quality bottles rule as always with cheese and biscuits also compulsroy to keep the cholesterol up during the quiz sessions. A few Crask veterans on the site can testify to this.
