  • The KPC's very own singer-songwriter Tealight has once again been busy in the studio writing a couple of new foot-tapping bothy tunes. 

    The first is a cracking tune - 'Sango' - celebrating the journey to the KPC's 2017 AGM.  Click on the image below for a wee listen in, and make damn sure you've got your dancing boots on: 

    The second tune - 'Mistaken' - is a withering commentary about Bothy Commercialisation and one or two of the chief protagonists (who should know better) currently pushing this vile scourge.  The battle against Bothy Commercialisation is is far from over, and we think this tune could become a battlecry against the greedy fools who look to our bothies to sanitise them for the pompous, pious, Outdoor Knobber types and line their pockets in the process.  Click on the image below for a wee listen:

    Not satisfied with lining his pockets on the back of bothies with his Book the Scottish Bothy Bible, Greedy Chappie (aka Geoff Allan) has teamed up with the misguided fools at www.topmunro.com in a new venture to make yet more filthy lucre off of the back of our rudimentary shelters by producing 'Top Bothy' trumps.  Fortunately it looks like Greedy has gone too far this time and the response to this greedy claptrap that we have seen is universally scathing.  The KPC has written to Top Munro requesting that they withdraw both the trumps and the bible from sale.  The commercialisation of bothies must stop.

    One of our chaps - John D Burns - has written a splendid book that has just been published.  'The Last Hillwalker' is a wee gem of outdoor/mountain literature.  We'll not waffle on here about it though as other folks on Amazon et al will give you the low down.  Highly recommended.  Click on the image below for full details.

    KPC member 'Tealight' has written his own tune inspired by nights in the bothy and has now cut his first rough-mix disc in the recording studio.  The tune is called Bothy Life and we think it will go platinum shortly.  Enjoy!
