Hillwalking Club Holiday in Croatia

Every year, our club takes a holiday abroad, and it's always an epic occasion. This year, 22 club members went to Croatia on a trip organised by The Travel Department. Club Secretary Ronagh Baumann organised the trip, for which much thanks. She also took some photos that capture the stunning scenery the walkers enjoyed. They returned home on Friday 11 October after a week away.

Here are Ronagh's luscious pictures.
