Mellon Charles Trip 2022

Many thanks for the good turnout of Club members who took part in the run
out West to Mellon Charles on the 14th May.

Our first port of call was to the Aultguish Inn for our Coffee/Tea break and we were well looked after by the very helpful staff. In very nice weather we proceeded west and stopped at the spacious car park near the Corrieshalloch Gorge to admire the view and take some photos (some of which are included below – if you have pictures you would like featured please email). We then carried on to the coast and Mellon Charles where we had an excellent lunch at the Aroma CafĂ©. Afterwards some purchases were made at the adjacent Perfume Studio before driving the short distance to the Arctic Convoys Museum in Aultbea. This proved to be a fascinating experience and told the story of the hardships and sacrifices made in the supply of war materials on the hazardous trips to Northern Russia by the convoys from Loch Ewe during the 2nd World War. Members then returned home via the wonderful route through Gairloch.

The winners of the scratch card competitions were Megan Graham (bottle of whisky and club water bottle) and Andrew Blake (bottle of gin and club water bottle). Many thanks to Lynne Clark who ran the competition and collected all the cash for club funds.
