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 email@example.com. 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.
In light of the current coronavirus, we have looked at advice from Mountaineering Scotland and have also been contacted by some of our venues, and therefore have cancelled some of our forthcoming events.
There is a variety of hills large and not-so-large in the area. Cost of accommodation at the Inverardran Cottage is £12.50 per person per night. You will need to bring a sleeping bag. This weekend will also incorporate dinner at the Best Western Crianlarich Hotel on the Saturday night.
This will be the Club’s first trip to Canna, so if you are into bagging islands this could be one to add! We will set sail from Mallaig on the CalMac ferry on Friday (time TBC), returning on Monday. We will be staying at the island’s bunkhouse where 8 places have been booked at a cost of £15 per night. It would also be possible to camp near the bunkhouse if it becomes full which will be £10/tent/night. The bunkhouse is half a mile from the pier and has essential facilities. Canna has some amazing wildlife and wonderful views. It is the westernmost of the Small Isles archipelago and is linked to the neighbouring island of Sanday. Canna is just 4.3miles x 1 mile but offers plenty to do and enjoy. To ring the changes we have booked 8 places for dinner in the Canna cafe for the Saturday night. It may be possible to bag the neighbouring island of Muck on the Saturday.
9 May – THIS EVENT HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED
Grade 3 day walk
A day walk in the Arrochar Alps; possibly the Cobbler or something in the West of Scotland to entice those living around the Glasgow area.
We are returning to Knoydart again! Three Munros, three Corbetts, miles of remote coastline, more distance hills and many lower level walks are accessible from our base in this wild area. We will take the ferry from Mallaign on the Friday and return on the Monday, staying in the well-known Knoydart Foundation Bunkhouse for the 3 nights. The accommodation is well equipped and will cost £25 per night. The return ferry is approx £20. Please show interest early to avoid disappointment!
19-21 June – THIS EVENT MAY BE CANCELLED, FURTHER INFORMATION AVAILABLE LATER
Speyside – Long Distance Walk
Following the success of the Lairig Ghru walk earlier this year, why not try this long-distance path of approximately 21 miles (34 km) through the Cairngorm National Park. Staying at the Cairngorm Christian Centre in Kincraig on the Friday and Saturday nights, the plan is to walk between Glen Tromie, past Gaick Lodge and Dalnacardoch. Seven places have been booked at Kincraig but it may be possible to increase the number if required.
Mon 5 – Fri 9 October
