6th May 2006, Callander
The second Muddy Boots gathering saw 27 family members meeting up in Callander. We met up with a lot less hassle than last time: big car parks with toilets make a good meeting point for such a crowd.
We walked to Bracklinn Falls then Callander Crags. Owing to an independent-minded canine, some people took alternative routes to the Falls, some of which got a bit complicated. We reckon Alexander must get the prize for the most convoluted route to the falls, with John coming a close second (well Alexander did find Wooster after all).
We were very lucky with the weather, considering the forecast, and there were a large gathering of pink noses at tea back at the Dreadnought.
Many thanks to Elspeth and Morag Inglis for suggesting Callander and doing the research.
I'm sure someone from the crowd who came must have some digital photos for this page, so feel free to email
them to me and I will make a gallery
as on the Pitlochry page.
