Torrin bunkhouse weekend meet on Skye, 10-12 May 2019

Scrambling, epic walks and a bunch of Grahams is the short story of our Skye weekend.We had organised a day’s scrambling instruction by Ian Stewart, Mountaineering Scotland’s Mountain Safety Adviser for a team of four members to coincide with our Torrin meet. The day was held under the aegis of Mountaineering Scotland’s excellent clubs programme. […]

Strathfarrar – Sgurr Fhuar-thuill, 5 February 2017

Winter is here at last. It was a fairly complicated meet up at the Strathfarrar gate with ten folk and two huskies arriving in 6 vehicles from different directions, then piling into three – including a change of van for the huskies.  We had three potential new members with us: Skye (from Alaska) and Alessio […]

Burns Supper meet to Elphin, 20/21 January 2017

Seventeen members attended this weekend meet, with most members staying in the Caving Club hut and the rest at Naismith’s further to the west. Saturday’s weather was fantastic, with a cloud inversion for most of the day.  Richard, Shona, Arthur, Jim, Kirsty and Michael left a cold car park at Inchnadamph to climb Conival and […]

Inverness Climbing Wall meet, 15 January

The first climbing meet of the year was to the climbing wall at Inverness Leisure.  Proving popular, 20 members (old and new) made it along to the climbing wall, followed by coffee and cake at the floral hall.  Despite being very busy, new members got a taster session on the basics – a big thank you […]

Mill Cottage Christmas Dinner Meet, 9/10 December

We had a full house for our Christmas dinner meet on 9/10 December in the ever-popular Mill Cottage, at Feshiebridge in the sunny Cairngorms.  Well, maybe not sunny; it was almost midwinter, but despite that everyone enjoyed a good day out on the Saturday followed by an excellent meal contributed by members. Annie and Lisa […]

Carn Chuisseag, 27 November

A group of four – Arthur and Michael, with new member Elinor and guest Faisal – had a grand day out on Carn Chuisseag.  We walked in from Glen Calvie Lodge picking up the stalkers path after Diebedale.  The previous weeks snow had been all but stripped from the hill by a couple of warm days, but we found […]

Rucksacks Hostel, Braemar, 11/12 November

Eleven folk spent an enjoyable weekend at Kate’s excellent hostel in Braemar, although it has to be said that the weather was mixed over the weekend.  Richard, Shona, Annie, Cerian and Arthur explored Glen Callater, checking out the refurbished bothy at Lochcallater Lodge – which is much improved, but still no stove or fire – and variously ascending Carn […]
