Milehouse Hut, Kincraig – 17th/18th December 2021

‘Twas the weekend before Xmas and all was quiet…well, except for at Milehouse! That said, it was a little quieter than usual, with a new strain of Covid on the loose and a re-tightening of measures, we were a few shy of filling the hut, which was a real shame as it’s among the best…

A very efficient multi-fuel stove soon heats up the comfortable lounge/ kitchen area and beyond, two w.c. /shower rooms adding…
