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. 

6 – 8 September (revised date)
Island of Lismore
Grade 4 / cycle

lismore1
Our provisional plans for this event are to stay in Oban on the Friday night and do a leisurely morning cycle, approximately 25 miles, to Port Appin, take the short (10 miinute crossing) passenger ferry to the north end of Lismore bunkhouse (approx 5 miles) which has a campsite as well where we would stay for the Saturday night. Saturday afternoon and Sunday would be available for exploring Lissmore by bike or on foot and we would return to Oban direct on the vehicle ferry (terminal approx 1 mile from bunkhouse/campsite) on Sunday. It is also possible not to cycle and go direct from Oban on the vehicle ferry on the Saturday morning and there is also flexibility to extend your stay on Lismore. This is a busy time, so early booking essential. 

20 – 22 September
Muir Hut, Braemar
AGM weekend
Grade 3, 4 & 5
This year we return to the Muir Hut near Braemar for the AGM. This is a lovely, well equipped hut, in a perfect location for every type of walking at a perfect time of year, so why would you not come? The AGM will take place on Saturday evening, giving you a full day to bag a few easy Munros at Glenshee, or a Corbett or two from the doorstep. For those wanting an easier day or if the weather is inclement, there is the beautiful Linn of Dee nearby.

18 – 20 October
Glen Nevis
Grade 2, 3
We are returning to an autumn weekend at the Glen Nevis Hostel. Situated at the foot of Ben Nevis, the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is only 3 miles from Fort William. The days should still be fiarly long as it is before the clocks change. However, please be prepared for a possible onset of wintery conditions. Ice axis and crampons may or may not be needed, although should be brought just in case. Possible walking options include and are not limited to one or two Munros – Mullach nan Coirean and its next-door neighbour Stob Ban, An Gearanach and Sgurr a’Mhaim. There are also several corbetts within an hour’s drive to hopefully kekep Corbet baggers happy! The hostel costs £24.50 per person per night and bookings should be made direct with hostel and be made early to save disappointment.

29 November – 1 December
Loch Ossian
Grade 2 & 3
We are making a return to the cosy small hostel at Loch Ossian, reachable only by train, or track over the hills. There are three Munros, a Corbett and a Graham accessible from this remote hostel. Please note that the club is not making a group booking and the hostel is small with only a limited number of beds, so it is important to express interest in going then make your own booking with the hostel. There is only one train in each direction on that Sunday.
