If you have a Hill Walk, Climb, Cycle or Other Activity you would like included then why don't you plan it! Don't be frightened to do so, cos we’ll be delighted to help.  Just ask for assistance.  To include an event on this page please enter the details in the members area or email Irene Cahill with all the necessary details.  

If your on our potential members list and need more information then please contact one of the committee via the contacts page.

Many of our members go out informally on a regular basis in small groups/car loads depending on weather conditions etc. with too short a notice to add to this events page. Therefore all members and potential members are advised to attend our club nights as often as they can to find out what's going on and do some networking!

For full contact details and route maps for each event please use the members area.

Please review the club Participation Statement for details on safety and responsibility on club events.

October 2016
Monday event has been added or changed in last 30 days 17/10/2016 Club night Red Squirrel Pub, Stevenston KA20 3EG
Red Squirrel Pub
NOTE NEW VENUE: RED SQUIRREL PUB KA20 3EG (Next to Kilwinning Fire Station)

After some discussion the club committee has decided to try a new venue for the monthly club night in an attempt to encourage more people to attend (recently we've been lucky to get more than half a dozen turning up). Hopefully the central location of the Red Squirrel will make it easier for folk to get to especially those from the North Coast and Garnock Valley. And even for those from elsewhere it is easy to access as it is just off the A78.

We appreciate that lots of discussion takes place on the Facebook page but the club nights provide an opportunity to meet up to chat about upcoming day walks and weekend meets as well as share experience and knowledge.

As ever potential members are welcome to attend to find out more about the club.
Sunday event has been added or changed in last 30 days 30/10/2016 Internal Training Halloween Navigation Practice Day, Greenock Cut
Greenock Cut Visitor Centre
A chance to brush up on navigation skills. Plan will be to split up into small groups of 4 or 5 each with an experenced club member (hopefully we will have a few volunteers). Then follow an "orienteeering" type cross country circuit with treats along the way for big and little kids! Followed by food at the excellent Ardgowan Fisheries Cafe.
December 2016
Tuesday event has been added or changed in last 30 days 27/12/2016 Day walk Corrour Station
Beinn Na Lap Route Description
After last year's successful (if windy!) trip plan is to repeat the adventure hopefully with a bit of snow this time! Subject to ScotRail confirming winter timetable plan will be to drive to Arrochar station to catch 9.37am train, arriving at Corrour at 11.21am. Return on 6.25pm arriving back at Arrochar at 8.06pm. 7 hours between trains gives plenty of time to do either Beinn Na Lap, Leum Ulleim or a circuit around Loch Ossian. The cafe at Corrour Station is unfortunately closed in winter but I anticipate we will take disosable BBQs like we did last year to cook burgers!
January 2017
Friday event has been added or changed in last 30 days 27/1/2017 Weekend Glencoe Independent Hostel
Glencoe Routes
Glencoe Alpine Bunkhouse (http://www.glencoehostel.co.uk/hostel-bunkhouse/alpine-bunkhouse/) booked for exclusive use. 1 x 8 bedded and 2 x 4 bedded rooms.

Cost 30 per person for two nights self catering accommodation. Eat/drink at the Clachaig Inn on Fri and Sat evenings. Lots of walking options (http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/glencoe.shtml).

Please remember that the club does not provide leaders for walks and that everyone is responsible for their own safety on the hills. This is especially important in winter when (hopefully!) there will be snow on the ground and daylight hours are much shorter.

Contact Steve Morley to check if spaces still available.
May 2017
Friday 19/5/2017 Weekend Kinlochleven
walkhighlands.co.uk Routes
A Kinlochleven meet is being arranged for weekend of Friday 19th to Sunday 21st/Monday 22nd May 2017.

Some of us are planning a repeat of our Ten Mamores Munros epic (see https://ayrshiretiger.wordpress.com/2014/06/10/a-long-walk-in-the-mamores/). Obviously this is a very strenuous walk (approx 23 miles/11,000 feet of ascent) and will be a very long day with an early start. However there are also plenty of other walks in the area (http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fortwilliam/glencoe.shtml).

Accommodation available at the MacDonald Hotel (rooms/cabins/camping) - see http://www.macdonaldhotel.co.uk/. Plenty of other accommodation as well (http://www.kinlochleven.co.uk/see-and-do/local-directory/). Please get together and organise/book accommodation directly.

Plan is to arrive Friday and meet in the evening at the MacDonald Hotel for bar meal/drinks. Depending on weather attempt the Ten Munros on Saturday (with Sunday as a back up day) or do other walks if preferred. Sunday walks dependent on weather/fitness after Saturday! Return either Sunday or Monday.
