Current Programme

calendarOur 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 schc.info@yahoo.co.uk. 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 to contact us for advice.

20 January
Club Dinner meet, Callander
The Annual Dinner will be at the Lade Inn, Kilmahog, just north of Callander, on 20 January at 7pm. We were there two years ago. There will be one or two walks on the Saturday or you can come just for the meal. It’s essentially a day event but if you want to stay on Friday or Saturday night the Callander Hostel has very reasonable rates (see www. callanderhostel.co.uk) or there are B&Bs in the area.  Further info on meal choices/deadlines in January.
