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 to contact us for advice.
14 April Day Walk
An easy day taking in Munros, Geal-charn (917m) and A’Mharconaich (975m). This is a continuation of the November Day walk to bag the other two Munros! Of course hills and location could be varied according to conditions at the time.
4 – 7 May (Friday-Monday)
Naismith Hut, Elphin
(North of Ullapool)
Grades 2, 3
This is another new venue for the club. The Naismith Hut in Sutherland is maintained by Mountaineering Scotland and lies on the east side of the A835
Cul Mor and Cul Beag are on the doorstep with Stac Pollaidh , Braebag and Ben More Coigach not very far away. Classic west coast hills in abundance. For the committed Munro bagger, Ben More Assynt and Conival are nearby.
There is space for 10 persons in two dormitories on alpine platforms with mattresses. The hut is fully equipped with electricity and gas for cooking and has a drying room, toilets and a shower.
The cost is £40 pp for the accommodation.
Day Walk, Ochils
We plan a walk to take in Ben Cleuch (721m, the highest point in the Ochils). It will be between 11 and 14 kilometres long (depending on choice of routes on the day) with about 750 metres of ascent.
1-4 June (Friday-Monday)
Isle of Rum
Grade 2, 3
We return to Rum for some rough walking in the Rum Cuillin as well as some easier walks in this unique island environment. The intention would be to sail out from Mallaig on the Friday afternoon and return on the Monday (although arrival on the Saturday and departure on the Sunday is also possible). Return ferry fare is £8.60. The intention would be to camp at the serviced campsite (hot showers, toilet and shelters available), for £6 /night. However, there is an option of a bunkhouse at £23 each / night, or a cabin sleeping 4 at the campsite (if available).
23 June – Day Walk
A longer walk to climb four Munros – Carn Gorm, Meall Garbh, Carn Mairg and Creag Mhor. We can take advantage of the summer hours of daylight, and anticipate June sunshine.
21 July – Day Walk
More details of this walk to follow.
