Just a very brief post from a far flung outpost of the Cairngorms where the internet is frustratingly slow.
For anyone who hasn’t already heard via Facebook, BBC Scotland will shortly be showing an hour-long documentary about bothies in Scotland.
Filmed over the best part of a year by Jack Archer, working with MBA volunteers and bothy afficionados from a’ the airts, it promises to be a great insight into bothy culture and the lives of the people who look after the bothies.
Yours truly can be seen suited up for the Corrour Bothy bog change, but there are plenty normal(ish) people in there too, with some great bothies across Scotland. Haven’t seen it all myself yet, but the brief clips available on the BBC website promise an hour well spent when it’s shown on BBC Scotland on December 9th.
It’ll be on iPlayer soon after and you’ll be able to see it at this link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b06s1762 You can also see four brief teasers here in advance of the big event.
