Kinloch Rannoch meet 29/10/17

Five of us went on this Sunday meet to Beinn a Chuallaich, a corbett near Kinloch Rannoch (Sue H, Dave T, Susan B, Paul C, Lisa C). Weather forecast was very promising with some good clear Autumn weather to be expected although accompanied by a cold north wind. After much discussion we decided to approach …

Drumochter – September 2017

The forecast for this day meet was not good and only myself and Dave T were interested. Therefore, instead of heading all the way up to Drumochter we chose a shorter day on Birnam Hill which would be a bit more sheltered. It was also a new hill for Dave. Chucked it down with rain …

Ben Each – August 2017

A few photos from the August day meet which myself and Dave T attended. Dave chose Ben Each near Strathyre which was a new corbett for him. I chose an interesting descent route rather than returning via the ascent path!   Here is a link to my Ordnance Survey route of our walk https://osmaps.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/route/1492815/Ben-Each-circular Stayed …

Culter Fell July 2017

What a great day out we had on the July day meet. Dave T requested the Southern Uplands and I suggested a route up Culter Fell doing a horseshoe circuit around the hills at the head of Holms Water. Myself, Allan B and Dave headed down to the Broughton/Tweedsmuir area and up the Holm Water …

Two Ciste Dhubhs – July 2017

The July 2017 camping meet was to Faichemard Farm in Invergarry. An excellent campsite, spread out over a large area with lovely woodland pitches. Unfortunately the weather forecast for Saturday was not good, lots of rain and strong winds. Nevertheless we decided to venture up to Kintail and give Ciste Dhubh a try. Despite the weather …

Cannich Weekend

Just three of us attended the camping meet at Cannich in May 2017. Liz K, Dave T and myself. Unfortunately Liz had problems with her knee and was unable to do much walking but she did take the opportunity to do some painting at Urquhart Castle. On the Saturday myself and Dave set out up …

Glen Lyon day meet

Just two of us attended the Easter Sunday day meet to Glen Lyon, myself and Dave T. We headed for a quieter hill Meall nan Maigheach to avoid the hoardes that would no doubt be found on the more popular haunts of Invervar hills and Lawers range. A promising weather forecast was disappointing as it …

The Last Six Months

Well the highlight of the last 6 months was definitely the club’s 40th anniversary meet at the Morvich Centre in Kintail last September. Pretty good weather was had for the whole weekend and I think most people managed to ascend a munro or two over the weekend. I, along with Tim Wilson and Sharon Towell tried to …

40th Anniversary meet report

The venue was the Morvich Outdoor Centre in Kintail situated at the foot of Glen Lichd between Beinn Fhada and the Five Sisters. For some peace and quiet (they are a rowdy lot the Ancrum) I opted to stay down the road at the Shiel Bridge campsite rather than stay at the centre where the …
