Congratulations to those Gramps who travelled up to take part in the Scottish Night Champs held at Findhorn last weekend.
Looks like an intriguing mix of urban/forest/dunes judging from RouteGadget so it’ll be interesting to hear what they thought of it.
Did it encourage a few more folk to have a go than would do if it were all forest I wonder?
