Archery lets fly at Kinlochleven

Originally uploaded by Gary Danton
What a lovely idea for a rainy Tuesday - youngsters on a Monday. In less than three months since it started, local archery enthusiasts have flocked to join the club new club at Kinlochleven. Folks travel regularly from Glencoe and Ballachulish. Ring up Kirsteen Hine, the secretary, for details for visitors who want to try it out. She is at 01855 831119 . Great idea - what with this and archery lessons on the Glencoe Mountain resort, our Viking heritage is as strong as ever.
The Vikings used the strongbow, and their archers were situated behind the Shield Wall. Yes, they could have used it in a battle in Glencoe. We are mentioned in the Viking Sagas.
