Stockinish and Memories

In 1986, 18 junior members of the South Dartmoor Cyclists' Touring Club undertook a tour of Scotland and one of them took this photograph of Stockinish Youth Hostel, South Harris. It had doubled as a primary school and temporary hostel in the 1960s and '70s, but has long closed. An account of the tour, however, is available on the club's website. Anyone who has memories of the Gairloch (below) and Ratagan SYHA Hostels on the Mainland should consider the West Highland Free Press article that draws attention to their 85th anniversaries.
