Mull 2023 trip report

Our regular Spring Bagger Rambles trip continued the Scottish island theme this year, following on from our popular Islay trip last year. This time staying in Craignure on Mull.

As trip co-ordinator, Steve Smith said:

Mull includes 27 Marilyns including 1 Munro, 1 Corbett and 9 Grahams. A further 12 Humps making 39 in all, not to mention 183 Tumps, 12 of which are Dodds. It all makes Mull a great venue for everyone“.

Thanks to Alex Cameron for these pics. Alex had a commuting stop-over at Oban SYHA and then started out with two nights at the MBA maintained bothy on the island, before then joining up with the others for a long weekend at Craignure Bunkhouse.

The Saturday main walk being a very long-awaited group outing across to the must-visit SIB/Marilyn islands Ulva and Gometra.

Alex commented:  "Once again much appreciation to all involved in coordinating these meet up events for us; and it was really encouraging to see a lively bunch of enthusiastic new faces along there too attending for the first time".
