Doodlecat's Homepage

Picture of Doodle - a 
black cat

Welcome to Doodlecat, where we enjoy the pleasures of life (with a slight bias towards the outdoors). This page is regularly updated with news and views plus information about any additions or changes to the various parts of the site. It acts as Doodlecat’s Blog too, so the odd rant considered opinion may pop up from time to time.

I would love to be able to say that Doodlecat is all my own work, but it isn’t. Much of the outdoors content is courtesy of the splendid people who participate in the annual TGO Challenge (there is a section entirely devoted to this unique event) and many others.

To help in tracking down that elusive morsel on Doodlecat, the search facility under the title bar above is tailored to help you find it, either on this home page (Doodlecat's Blog) all the rest of the site (Main Site) or – if all else fails - the internet!

So have a rummage around the old cat basket and enjoy your time with us!

Bothy Competition Result

It was a tough competition (I don’t let go of a bottle of cask strength that easily) so very well done to those who got all four – you certainly know your bothies. There were some very imaginative entries too, one entrant convinced that they were all shots of the same place!

The final entries are in, and Miss W has just drawn the winner…who is….Colin Crawford! Well done Colin, and commiserations to the other competitors.

So, where were these elusive bothies? No actual GRs are given here on a public forum, as some bothies get unwelcome visitors, but the names should let you know if you were right or wrong.

1) Oban Bothy – MBA maintained bothy well known to many Challengers
2) Taigh Stobh Uaine – Estate bothy east of Glen Albyn
3) Loch Chiarain – MBA bothy
4) Red Bothy – Well known bothy near River Dulnain (and not, as one wag had it, the Betty Ford Clinic, Aviemore).

It’s been fun doing this, and the next competition will be a lot easier in that specialised knowledge is not required, but good map reading skills are! It’s a photo competition, but this time we’ll tell you where and when the photo was taken. What you have to do to win is work out the GR that the photo was taken from. That’s for Easter, though. Right now I’m off for a little lie down after all this excitement – gotta be at my best for the New Year frolics this evening.

Happy New Year!
