A fine night – Bothy Ballads and Burns

A fine night of songs, tunes and stories was enjoyed by all who attended the annual Bothy Ballads and Burns night at the Salmon Bothy.

Guests were treated to a fine traditional Burns Night meal of Haggis, Neeps and Tatties prepared by resident chief cook and bottle washer Doug Hay.

We were very well entertained by Salmon Bothy regulars and friends Bill Grey and John Dixon and our special guests for the evening Paul Anderson and Shona Donaldson.

Next month we celebrate the club’s 10th year with a whole weekend of events. Fri 15th – Sun 17th March 2019. Click the link below for more information.
