Judith and Alan have had a life long love of Scotland and its wild places and have cycled through many of them over the years. They were members of the Cyclists Touring Club (through which they met) and the Scottish Youth Hostels Association. Among their exploits was regular attendance at the annual CTC York Rally where Judith attracted the accolade of Bicycle Belle. Their contribution to both organisations over the years has been huge and Alan was convener of several hostels (including Loch Lomond Youth Hostel). They were both heavily involved in the restoration of the CTC huts at Broughton and Callander. Holidays were usually on the bikes and often abroad to countries such as Norway and Austria. Milton of Campsie has been their home since the house was built in the 1970s. Judith's green fingers are evident in the colourful and productive garden and Alan's expertise in building is evident in the improvements they have made to the house. Music also plays a large role in their lives, Judith having learned to play the fiddle as a youngster. She attends weekly music sessions with her friends while Alan is away bowling.
