What we're about

“Cioch Hillwalking Club – Dunfermline” is for anyone in West Fife and local environs who is interested in meeting people to enjoy days hillwalking on some of Scotland’s amazing hills. Our main focus will be day trips, within 2 hours drive of Dunfermline, to climb some of our local Munros and Corbetts. We welcome all levels of experience but do expect a reasonable level of hill fitness so if in any doubt about an event then please contact the Organiser prior to confirming your attendance.

Cioch Mountaineering Club is a long-established club and has been running monthly weekend trips to huts, bunkhouses and hostels for 30 years. The club will still be running as normal, and you are of course welcome to join us, but our Meetup group will focus on day trips to the hills.

Our Meetup group is to supplement our traditional club activities, so we are primarily hoping that hill walkers from West Fife and local areas will be encouraged to join in so that car shares are easier to organise.

We will ask people attending our Meetups to contribute a small fee to help cover our Meetup subscription. We also hope that members will be happy to share petrol costs for the Meetups when car share is involved.

All members are must be responsible for their own well being and safety while on the walks and this group is not liable for any accidents or injuries that occur. Our event organisers are however, very experienced and confident walkers and will ensure that any unnecessary risks are avoided.

All walkers must have their own equipment for a day on the hills. Walking boots, rucksack, warm clothes, waterproofs, midgie spray, food and water. In winter walkers should have also have the appropriate equipment and the knowledge of how to use it in extreme conditions.
