Replying to a follower, he added that he is recovering well from the frightening incident.
“Feels like a hangover from hell,” he added. “Could of [sic] been a lot worse!”
On Thursday, another course manager, Pitlochry’s Stuart Griffiths, was taken by air ambulance to Ninewells Hospital in Dundee after being involved in what the club later described as a “traumatic experience”.
It was reported that Griffiths was trapped under a tractor after getting into difficulties on an embankment.
Despite sustaining serious injuries, he is reportedly comfortable and expected to make a full recovery.
Everybody at bunkered.co.uk wishes both Neil and Stuart full and speedy recoveries.
