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.

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.
