Schools Hebridean Society

The Schools Hebridean Society was founded by John Abbott in 1962. The first camp that he organised was on Gometra and many subsequent ones followed. Rhenigidale (below) is featured on the Gatliff Hebridean Hostels Trust website following the expedition there in 1974. The picture above is from an encampment at Lord Salisbury's Dam. Take a look at the website of the now defunct organisation, but, if you have memories of involvement, do respond to the appeal by Tom Abbott. He is raising funds for Alzheimer's UK following his father being diagnosed with the condition.
