*Until the 18th century, wolves roamed the deep wooded glens of Scotland and struck fear into the hearts of many, to the extent that shelters or `spittals` were built in remote areas. Travellers would progress only as far as the `spittal` before nightfall, while outside the wolves howled on the chill northern wind. Think on this as you munch your scone at 11:00am.
The next club walk is on the 8th March to Clachnaben. starting at 7:30am (Blairgowrie) and 7:45am (Alyth). Other information/events: AGM and Annual Dinner, Blairgowrie Golf Club, 7:00pm, 27th March 2020.
