Nudists celebrate their 'greatest' milestone

Scotland's nudists celebrated their 'greatest' milestone so far as they went on their first ever group hike yesterday (Saturday) at their annual gathering in Dunoon’s idyllic Glenmorag Hotel.

Dozens of men and women, most in just boots, walked through a sunny, secluded glen on the popular west coast.

Snow on the hills led several to keep a few clothes on, including fleeces, while others opted to wear colourful cover-ups, including a grass skirt, to fit in with the Hawaiian theme of the group's latest annual weekend social.

Unlike the infamous Naked Rambler Stephen Gough, the members of the Scottish branch of British Naturism all had garments with them to put on if they saw children or any concerned adults, making their half-hour amble perfectly legal, they said.

The Long Man of Wilmington

The reason some people get so upset about nakedness is, of course, because we get to see the genitals. This makes it a fraught subject and the two functions of this part of the body confront us very directly with what it means to be human. The Long Man of Wilmington has solved this problem by not being a Long Man at all (as is the other giant chalk hill-figure in Britain, the Cerne Abbas giant). Instead, the Wilmington giant is just an outline. He could be a Long Woman for all we know. So what better image of the human being can you find? Freed of all the problems of gender stereotyping, the figure represents us all - whatever colour or sex we happen to be. The poet W. B. Yeats put this very succinctly when he wrote 'But Love has pitched his mansion in the place of excrement.' Some people react with horror to the naked body because it reminds them that they poop and pee and they would prefer not to think about that. But in addition it reminds them of where they came from - where they emerged from as babies - and again that is an uncomfortable feeling for some people. It's all so very - well - physical! More

They also informed local police and press beforehand and posted two of their members at the entrance to Morag’s Fairy Glen outside Dunoon on the Firth of Clyde to warn anyone who appeared about their mass walk in the altogether. Ivan Gill, 68, event organiser, said it was their "most significant achievement" following their success in reversing a council ban preventing them from holding a nude private swim at the town's public pool. That also went ahead without a hitch yesterday.

Summing up many of the naturists' mixed views of the Naked Rambler, whose refusal to don clothes led to him being jailed repeatedly during his epic protest walks throughout Scotland , Mr Gill added: "We share a belief in the right to be naked but what we have not got in common [with Stephen Gough] is a respect for the law as it stands."
