On, on we pressed, for the Highlands were calling loudly by now and it was not long before beautiful Callander made its welcome appearance. 

There was a short trip to Teith, a brief halt at Loch Lubnaig then rendezvous at Balquhidder

Lunch was at Loch Doine, where the party soon resolved itself into “Uppies”, “Doonies” and “Neutrals”

The “Uppies” climbed to the summit of the mountain.

"The winter 1956 outing to Hillend consisted of six members - five with skis; one with a camera.

One of our Vice Presidents again demonstrated his versatility by donning skis for the first time, and not only going down the hill without falling but managing to turn at the foot.

He was last seen on the nursery slopes trying to produce the perfect S curve, but he fell on the intersection of thirds.”
