Tarf Hotel work party


Tarf Hotel, Glen Tilt, Cairngorms

Feith Uaine Bothy

A quick newsflash on developments at the Tarf Hotel (Feith Uaine Bothy).

What will hopefully be the final work party of the year has been organised for the weekend of Friday August 3o to Sunday September 1.

While the bulk of the planned work has been completed, the doors need attention to be ready to face up to the winter weather and the west wall still needs repointing to prevent damp penetrating inside.

One joiner is already arranged but, with two exterior doors needing attention and some of the interior doors needing fixed after being removed for the reflooring, some assistance would no doubt be appreciated.

The rubble which prevented the west gable being repointed earlier has now been removed, enabling scaffolding to be erected so that the whole wall can be properly repointed – a job that’s much needed.

Because the bothy is so remote, Maintenance Organiser Ricky Marshall has once more arranged to get access by four-wheel-drive vehicles, so anyone wanting to lend a hand at the work party should give Ricky a call on 01738 643642.
