A small shop in Crieff was recently the subject of a T.V. programme covering a presence from the ‘other side’. The shop is called City Prices whose premises have long been the subject of strange happenings and a certain ‘atmosphere’. However, the shop owner has learned to co exist with his lodger.

Bag a Munro!

Comments off

A Munro is a mountain in Scotland with a height of 3000ft. ( 924 metres) or more. There are 284 qualifying peaks which stretch from Ben Lomond in the south to Ben Hope in Sutherland, a line which covers some of Britain’s most stunning scenery.

The eponymous peaks are named after Sir Hugh Munro (1856-1919) who founded and became President of The Scottish Mountaineering Club in 1889. In 1891 Sir Hugh published “Tables giving all Scottish mountains exceeding 3000 feet in height”.

Since 1902 more than 3500 people have climbed or “bagged” all the Munros.
