Bothy trip

A welcome change of pace with an overnight bothy trip for The Ice Factor with the Bedford Schools CCF. We set off from Kinlochleven in bright sunshine with plenty of evidence of a frost at 500m and above. After a good walk and a night at a top bothy we tidied up behind us and walked out in much milder drizzly conditions.
The monument in the video is near the shore of The Blackwater reservoir and is to a Minister who died in a December in the 1870s and who was carried home to be buried in Surrey. What was he was doing in this remote spot in the Highlands 130 years ago?
