Our programme for the next few months is shown below. We hope that you will be interested in attending one or more of these meets. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit us on Facebook.
If you want to know more about the hills or area where we’re holding a meet, check out the Scotland and Scottish Mountains section of our links.
We ask that you are realistic and consider your fitness, resilience, ability and equipment before selecting a meet that is suitable to you. For example, the degree of fitness, resilience, ability and equipment that are required for a winter day in the Cairngorms, are of a completely different order of magnitude to those required for a summer walk in the Trossachs. You should be responsible for your own safety and enjoyment and consider that of others so that everyone has an enjoyable time and no one is put at undue risk or inconvenience. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate
Ling Hut is a classic mountain hut set in the magnificent Glen Torridon with the towering giants of Beinn Eighe and Liathach immediately to the north. The Corbetts of Sgorr nan Lochan Uaine and Sgurr Dubh together with the Munros of Beinn Liath Mohr, Sgurr Ruadh and Maol Chean-Dearg lie behind the hut while Beinn Alligin and a range of other hills are all within a short drive. Overall, a cornucopia of choice. The hut is a short walk from the public road and is equipped with gas heating and cooking while lighting is available courtesy of a generator. Sleeping is on platforms in one room where sleeping bags are required. The hut has been booked for 3 nights (Friday to Monday), to allow us plenty of time to enjoy in this glorious area, although it may be possible to stay for a shorter period. The cost is £37.50 per person for the 3 nights.
As in previous years, the retreat will be held at St. Drostans Centre, Glen Esk, near Brechin.
Although the retreat starts on the Friday evening, we also have use of the centre from Thursday afternoon/evening (1st November) if people wish to come a day early and walk on the Friday.
Speaker – Cathy Brodie from Dundee
Cost – £22 pppn (accommodation only)
Food – Please self-cater if coming Thursday/Friday.
All meals will then be provided for Saturday, and for Sunday breakfast and lunch. (Costs for this will be worked out during the Retreat.)
31 November – 2 December
Grade 2, 3
We are returning for a winter weekend at Aite Cruinnichidh Hostel, two miles from Roybridge, where there is access to a good range of Grahams, Corbetts and Munros. It will hopefully be drier and less windy than our last winter visit a few years ago! It is a hostel with good facilities in a peaceful location to help escape from the pre-Christmas materialism of shopping. A small number of places have been booked by the club at a cost of £17 – £20 per person per night (depending on the room type), but it is anticipated that we can get more places if required.
