What we're about

The Loch Lomond Camera Club is a member-run group of (slightly mad) enthusiastic photographers who typically have a get together once a week. While we are members of the Scottish Photographic Federation (and the PAGB), we are more about getting out and about, taking photo's and learning from each other.

Our regular meetups are held on a Thursday evening alternating between a meeting at the West of Scotland Autism and Aspergers Centre (Station St, Renton, G82 4ND) and group outings.

This page is the central point for confirming your attendance of any meetups and to communicate with members via email (not all members are on Facebook). Wherever possible the information will also be shared on our Facebook page.

Meetups are usually planned one month in advance.

Please note that all members attend all events at their own risk, and are responsible for their own decisions and safety. Participants in any club activities should be aware of and accept any risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement in the club.

Everyone is welcome to attend but any juniors (16 and under) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Club Day Trip - Isle of May (Puffin Island)

Middle Pier

£28.00

ISLE OF MAY: PLEASE NOTE DATE \ TIME CHANGE: 7th July 2019 Anchored on the edge of the Firth of Forth, the Isle of May is a magical mix of sea birds, seals and smugglers. In early summer the cliffs are heaving with nesting sea birds in a noisy spectacle you can witness from the cliff top path. The island is also home to the unmistakeable puffin, a comical looking bird that dazzles visitors with its brightly coloured bill. There's a dark past here though, with monks, Vikings and smugglers on the list of previous visitors. The island is literally jam packed with Puffins (which it is famous for as there are nearly 90,000 of them) and is home to many other nesting birds. For those with an interest, there are 3 lighthouses on the island included the first electric lighthouse in the UK. What to bring: Dress warm and wear good walking shoes as the island can get very windy and cold. Waterproofs are also a good idea in case it rains. Bring a hat for the sun and the Artic Terns. There is a visitor centre on the island should we need to take cover but bring your own snacks and cold drinks as there is no shop or vending machines on the island. Children are welcome but we do caution you that there are unprotected cliffs on the island and the nesting areas of the birds (puffins nest in burrows) need respected, so necessary supervision is paramount. There are 2 different ferries to the Island that depart from Anstruther. Due to the amount of gear we call carry, we will be taking the Isle of May ferry (there is also a ribbed fast boat but it gets very wet). Please let us know if you would prefer to travel on the ribbed boat. Sailing on the day is at 09:45am. We will have approximately 2.5hrs on the island. It is requested to check in 1/2 and hour ahead of sailing so we need to be in Anstruther by 09:15am. Travelling time from Balloch is approximately 2hours, 15 minutes (90 odd miles) so it would be prudent to depart at about 07h00 am from Balloch. You are welcome to travel directly without starting from Balloch should you wish. We will arrange car pooling nearer the time so feel free to book if you don't have transport and we will make a plan. COSTS: Adults: £28.00 Students (anyone with valid student card): £ 24.00 Young Adult: 16 or 17 years old: £24.00 Concession (65yrs ): £24.00 Child 3-15yrs: £ 14.00 PAYMENT: Please book using Meetup, and submit your payment as soon as possible. (you can pay with paypal or direct transfer). When you book you will be asked if you or anyone in your party qualifies for reduced pricing (as listed above). Our PayPal Account is [masked] Our Banking Details are as follows: Loch Lomond Camera Club Bank of Scotland Sort Code:[masked] Account:[masked] Your ticket is only confirmed when you are marked as paid. Please speak to David G if you would like any further information.
