The Scottish Ramblers Royal Deeside Gathering took place in September 2014. Thanks to some nice weather, and an interesting walk and talk at Mar Lodge Estate, the event was a great success. At a recent meeting, the Scottish Council Executive Committee agreed not to hold a Gathering in 2015 but to organise the next one for 2016. This decision was made after receiving reports at previous meetings that the format of the Gathering could benefit from being refreshed. After more than 25 years of early May weekends the Gathering will return with a new formula of walks, talks, fun and laughter in 2016. Please watch this space for updates and news of the Gathering.
