Most of you will have heard something about this new organization . Its immediate objective is the building of a chain of cabin huts across one of the finest parts of Scotland suitable for a tramping holiday When complete parties of trampers will be able to go on a week or fortnight’s tour at the minimum of expense or trouble . One of the links of the chain is now ready for occupation , in the beautiful district of Loch Ard . Here is a unique chance of living the simple life far from the the irritations and the hustle of the city amidst majestic surroundings of mountains , moors and lochs , and only about 30 miles from Glasgow.
The Rucksack Club is being registered under the Provident Societies act to provide for the needs of ramblers in Scotland . It is a non profit making concern , on the contrary it will make no appeal to the commercial mind which looks on all activity in the terms of large cash returns . Ramblers are asked to take out one or more £1 shares , which will entitle them to full membership with equal rights in dictating activities and electing office bearers . As soon as the registration is completed a meeting will be held to set the organization in motion.
