The above photograph is of the Rambling Group that Mr W. B. Thompson Jnr. led pictured at the "Snoot Youth Hostel" near Hawick after a weeks walking in the Scottish Borders. Several of the group had just gained their Higher School Certificate results the day before whilst at the Chapelhope Youth Hostel on the Loch of the Lowes.
COCKING A SNOOT!
Snoot was a Scottish Youth
Hostel near Hawick. For nearly half a century, it has offered Exmoor Trekking
in association with the Royal Dick Veterinary College's herd in Edinburgh.
The Snoot hostel, a leaky old church in the middle of nowhere, succumbed
to dry rot. Throughout its long life it excelled as the basic youth hostel's
basic youth hostel. What it lacked in creature comforts it more than made
up for in creatures. 15 hairy Exmoors parked outside the door. Thousands
of people from all over the world have had the opportunity of a close encounter
with an Exmoor pony; trekking, galloping, and parting company from, swimming
with and taking to the pub.
