Beinn nan Aighenan Via Ben Starav. (may involve Glas Bheinn Mhor)....Hard
Description The aim is to climb Beinn nan Aighenan, via Ben Starav and depending on time and on how everyone feels we may return via Glas Beinn Mhor or alternatively return via the Allt nam Mheirleach. In either case this is a hard walk with a steep climb to Ben Starav which involves some easy scrambling (clambering over boulders really) and a small easy scramble over the arete but this can be easily avoided as can any bits of exposure. Terrain The start can be boggy but this soon changes to good paths. Distance Depending on whether we do the 2 or all 3, the distance would be between 10 and 14 miles with an ascent of around 1500m This will not be a fast paced walk so please consider this when deciding your rsvp. We will walk as a group at a moderate pace What to Bring Warm and waterproof gear, sturdy hillwalking boots, food and drink. Important to know Members attend at their own risk, and are responsible for their own decisions and safety. Climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement. Unlikely but organiser reserves the right to cancel, even at short notice

What we're about

This club is for anyone interested in hill walking at all levels who is looking to meet new people, climb a few hills and more importantly enjoy good company in the process.

We organize a wide range of walks throughout the year, and we try to accommodate different abilities. Social events and other activities are also organised which is a great way to get to know everyone.

All new members are more than welcome and hopefully once you have joined you will see what a friendly and easy going group we are.

If you have any questions on the suitability of particular walks, please do not hesitate to contact us and the organiser of the walk will get back to you. Please note that well behaved dogs are welcome but we do not advise young children to come along on high level walks.

Membership

In order to cover club costs we will ask for a contribution towards Meetup fees from time to time.

Safety

All members are responsible for their own wellbeing 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 the appropriate footwear, rucksack, warm clothes, waterproofs, water and lunch.

We may occasionally use members pictures which have been published on Meetup for marketing purposes (including the club Facebook page) and in walking articles. Should you not wish for your pictures to be used in this way or you do not want a picture of yourself which has been taken by another member to be used please contact us.
