Tarf Hotel update

AA sign at Feith Uaine Bothy, Glen Tarf, Cairngorms

The famous Tarf Hotel sign

An overdue note to record that a second work party took place at the Tarf the week after the one I reported on recently.
Lots more work was done, with pointing both inside and out and jobs finished off to fireplaces and chimney pots.
MO Ricky Marshall said time and manpower didn’t allow boulders to be cleared from the west gable, which would have allowed scaffolding to be erected so that the wall could be repointed.
That, and some internal woodwork, is the only work remaining to be done in this year’s programme.
Ricky has also unearthed a wealth of historical information and some old photos of the bothy, which has enabled me to write a new page about Feith Uaine Bothy in the Cairngorm Bothies section of the blog. Thanks to Ricky for that.
