Torridon and the Cairngorms, Sunday 22nd November 2020

The chosen venues for this meet were Beinn Eighe, Beinn Damh and Glen Einich. A party of nine IMC members arrived at the foot of Beinn Damh on Sunday 22 November in what might be described as indifferent weather – cold, windy and damp. Mindful of club policy on numbers, and with the Covid safety officer present to keep us […]

Day Meet, 25 October 2020

The weather forecast promised gale force winds and rainy squalls from the south west.  And so it turned out.  We scattered to the north (Ben Klibreck) and east (Bynack More and Abernethy forest) to try to escape the worst of it. After some initial communication mishaps seven souls eventually gathered at a parking area a […]

Day meet, Sunday 8th November 2020

We followed the by now familiar routine of having three mini-meets on the same day to minimise the size of each party, and provide a choice of days out. This time it was An Teallach, Beinn Bhan in Applecross, and Glen Tromie in the Cairngorms. A group of six – Arthur, Dougie, Masoud, Paul S, […]

Day Meet to Glen Affric, Sunday 11 October 2020

We followed the by now familiar routine of having a number of mini-meets on the same day to minimise the size of each group. This time the chosen hills were Mam Sodhail, Tom a’ Choinich and Toll Creagach. Catherine, Karen, Helen and Arthur had a fine day in Glen Affric making a circuit of the […]

Day Meet, Sunday 20 September 2020

Fourteen club members and prospective members ranged far and wide on this meet.  A group of five headed to the Easains west of Loch Treig; half a dozen of us cycled down Loch Ericht, four visiting the tops and two going to the (closed) Culra Bothy; and three folk ventured north to the remoteness of […]

Day Meet, Sunday 6 September 2020

As usual in these changed times, our meets are organised with small groups heading to different hills and with people travelling independently.  People seem to be enjoying being in smaller groups and being able to choose from a range of activities.  This week we had ten people – six club members and four prospective members […]

Meet to Loch Cuaich and Kintail, 23 August 2020

As with the last few day meets, we’re having a series of mini-meets to keep the numbers in each group down to comply with the Government’s guidance. The Munro-baggers team saw Daniel, Tom, Brian, pooch Monty and Dougie all congregate at Loch Cuaich on the Knoydart road. A direct ascent of Spidean Mialach from the […]

Day Meet 9 August 2020, Glen Carron and Ben Avon

Our Covid-19 day meets continue. We are organising meets so that we have a number of small parties on different hills or doing different things to comply with meet up rules. Also, because we are not car sharing, we try to avoid a large number of cars turning up at the same car park.  One […]

Day meet, 26 July 2020

Like the last day meet – and possibly a good few in future – this meet was in fact a series of mini-meets to allow for the prescribed maximum group size and maximum number of households. Thanks to Dan, John and Catherine for setting it all up. Wendell, Irene and Dan met at the car […]

Day Meet 12 July 2020

It is good to be back on the hills.  Our first outing after lockdown saw ten people in three parties head for three different locations, trying to keep parties small so we didn’t have too many cars going to the one place and following the rules about how many people can meet up. Steve and […]
