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.

B29 Expedition (rerouted but still recce)

Drimsynie Estate

Pl;ease read description before deciding. This walk is over steep rough ground and has very limited if any escape routes, so make sure you are fit for a sustained walk of this nature From the starting point, we will make our way towards Stob na Boine Druin-fhinn then make our way to the key objective, a crash site of a B29A superfortress where there is still substantial wreckage. We will then continue to Beinn Thursuinn before returning to our starting point, either returning over Beinn lochain and descending to the cowal way or by descending to a bealach to meet up with our inward route to return to start. This will be decided after ascending Beinn Tharsuinn on day as to how group feels. The walk itself is not technically difficult but i would still rate this walk as hard because the walk is on rough moorland( with no visible paths), some sections are steep and parts could be wet and possibly boggy. As usual, this walk will be at a pace which suits the group as a whole. There will be frequent stops to undertake navigation checks and as such i expect the group to stay together and to help and support one another if required.
