Despite on-going Covid problems and travel disruptions for some of our members, the 2022 AGM/Gathering held at
the Balavil Hotel was a great success.

On Sunday, Andrew McCracken gave an illustrated talk about the Strathspey Railway Association; several of our members had already enjoyed a trip on this heritage railway.
