Broom tops out

Postby Rob Allanson » Wed May 13, 2009 4:30 pm

Dave Broom led over 30 enthusiasts during the recent Speyside Festival, including some distillery managers, to the summit of Ben Rinnes for the unveiling of a toposcope [or orientation plaque] which indicates the location of Speyside's' distilleries, many of which can be seen from the summit.
The brass toposcope, engraved with the names of the distilleries, the neighbouring towns and prominent features in the landscape including the River Spey sits unobtrusively on top of the now redundant trig point which belongs to the Ordnance Survey which gave its permission for it to be used in this way.
"It was overwhelming to see finally what started as a crazy idea, hatched on this summit years ago, become a physical reality" said Dave Broom.
