We enjoyed an evening of history, dancing and ghost stories in Duror Bothy, the birth place of  James of the Glen. James Stewart was hung for a murder he did not commit. His trail and execution was the most famous miscarriage of justice in Scottish legal history. The forest walk of three kilometres to the bothy is in a magnificent setting, tucked in below the towering Beinn a ` Bheithir. The Bothy is cared for by the Mountain Bothy Association, it has a wood burning stove, table and seating area and  raised platforms to sleep on. A truly enjoyable and liberating outdoor experience.
