Re: Dalwhinnie

It is always good to hear about a new hostel opening up. Thank you for the info Louise.

Reading this report reminded me about a 2 room school which is now a bothy on the CWT. I think it is called 'The Schoolhouse'. I spent a lovely night there. I was fascinated by the history of that place - a prefabricated building imported by rail from England and brought by wagon onto the estate. Children from the surrounding area walked in up to 3 miles from their homes - including some who crossed the river on stilts each morning and evening. Thoughts of the Geldie in spate made me shudder when I thought of those hardy kids!
