Mountain Challenge

On Saturday 7th July, a group of 5 Rotarians - Ronnie Forbes, Chris Sutton, Jack Tollan, Roger Parry & Graham Innes - along with Ursula Parry from Oban Inner Wheel, Ronnie's dog, Fergus and Chris' collie puppy, Susie - undertook a sponsored hill climb of Stuchd an Lochain, a Munro near Glen Lyon in West Perthshire.


On a lovely sunny day the 6 intrepid climbers managed a speedy ascent of the mountain and enjoyed lovely views from the summit including views of Ben Nevis, Schiehallion and Ben Cruachan.

After returning to the starting point at the dam on Lochan Diamh, Ronnie and Graham decided to climb a second Munro, Meall Bhuidhe, on the opposite side of the loch from Stuchd an Lochain, and successfully climbed this hill, with Fergus leading the way.

Sponsorship of over £500 will have been raised as a result of the climb to be utilised by Oban Rotary in supporting good causes.

The club has been undertaking these sponsored climbs for over twenty years and has raised thousands of pounds for various charities and good causes.
