On Saturday 6th June a group of youth hostel staff, past guests, friends and family gathered at Loch Ossian Youth Hostel to say a last farewell to Tom Rigg. Tom was warden ot Loch Ossian Youth Hostel for over 23 years where he welcomed everyone - including the local wildlife - and made a lasting impression on all who met him.

The day was wet and windy but poignantly the sun came out when we all went outside to finally return Tom to the place he loved so much. Thank you to all who came to make this sad occasion a memorable and fitting tribute.
