Friday 19th - Sunday 21st October 2012 

A great weekend staying at the Kintail Lodge Bunkhouses with groups walking the Five Sisters and Beinn Fhada on the Saturday, and some of the Glen Shiel hills on the Sunday, punctuated with a nice bolognese and strudel dinner on the Saturday evening (impressively prepared in spite of fairly minimalist self catering facilities!). Alex was out both days on his bike in spite of some wheel issues on the Saturday. Here's a another concisely worded meet report from Paul H summarising the trip:
