Date Undertaken: 20 – 21 January 2018
This year, I’ve set myself a challenge. Call it a new year’s resolution if you like. I’m planning to get outside, at least once a month, and explore parts of Wales I’ve either never been to before, or not visited for a long time. I’ll be “ticking off” every bothy that is located in this great nation. To most, they are abandoned dwellings on the map, forgotten memories of lives lived more simply. But to a few, they are a welcome refuge from the harshness of the wilds of the mountains of the UK. Located mainly in Scotland, there are relatively few in Wales, so it makes for a good challenge in a year. More information on these can be found on the Mountain Bothies Association site.
