Christmas Cocktail Party + Oxfam Donation

Tuesday 10th January 2017
Many thanks to the 30 trekkies who attended the annual Cocktail Party in late December. All the photos from this gala event (?) can be found in the Photos Page. Scot-Trek take no responsibility for the appearance and sobriety of our guests!

Thanks to them and to those who could not attend but still sent donations for the Oxfam collection. You raised over £362 which was used to buy the following Oxfam Unwrapped gifts - a farmyard, two goats, a toilet + four piles of poo. Somehow this all seemed very appropriate for Scot-Treks!

Day Walks Programme: future plans

Thursday 24th November 2016
Many thanks to all the walkers who literally have voted with their feet and have shown there is still a demand for the Day Walks. As a result the Spring Programme which was announced today is similar to the normal schedule. If the upward level of interest is maintained the future Day Walks programmes can also carry on.

So if you want to continue walking with Scot-Trek you know what to do!
