The Carn Deargs in Glen Roy, 7 April 2019

Three parties  of club members, totalling 9 people, meandered around the various Carn Deargs at the head of Glen Roy in thick mist, hence the limited opportunities for photos! Cerian, Daniel, Kirsty R. and John made a round of the two northerly Carn Deargs from Turret Bridge at the head of the glen; photo below. […]

Munro Centenary Wake, 17 March 2019

Tuesday 19th March saw the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir Hugh Munro, the first person to accurately survey Scotland’s highest mountains, the results of which were published in  the first edition of his Tables of Heights over 3000ft in 1891. Up until that point, it was widely believed that only around 30 of […]

Inverardran Cottage, Crianlarich, 22-23 March 2019

The Crianlarich meet was justifiably popular, with eighteen folk making the trip south to an area where there are more Munros, Corbetts, Grahams and other lumps and bumps than you could possibly hope to encounter in a weekend elsewhere.  I should confess at this point that I am just a little biased, since this was […]

Mountain biking meet, 3 March 2019

It was a brave team of five (Michael, Catherine, Shona, Becky and Kirsty) who headed off on a mountain biking circuit up to the Slochd, down to Sluggan Bridge, round to Boat of Garden and back over the hill to Carrbridge. It was an inauspicious start standing around in the drizzle and wind in the […]

Fannichs day meet, 24 February 2019

The sage of Inverness MC, who also happens to be our esteemed President, tells me that the views from Sgurr Mor on our club meet to the Fannichs on Sunday spanned from Ben Rinnes 69 miles to the east, to Harris 65 miles to the west – a distance of 134 miles – and from […]

Mar Lodge bunkhouse, 8-9 February 2019

The Gairnshiel Bridge was closed for repair so our journeys from Inverness to Mar Lodge were extended somewhat, either to the north by Strathdon or to the south via Kirkmichael. The consensus was that the detour to the north was faster. The storm force winds forecast for Saturday (>80mph) scattered us to the four points […]

Fuar Tholl, 3 February 2019

Ominous was the weather on the Achnashellach road, and we passed three snowploughs; lots of loose snow on the hill too. There were mutterings in the car-park as sleet mixed with rain, and the surrounding hills were invisible. Despite that, we all marched onward through the gloom, heading up Coire Earba. If we could at […]

Burns Supper, 18-19 January 2019

We had an almost full house of 18 for our Burns Supper at the ever-popular Elphin caving club hut, north of Ullapool. Dougie and Michael made an early start to the weekend, heading for Quinag – above – on Friday but being repulsed by loose snow and steep ground at the rock band on the […]

Monadhliaths Meet, 6 January 2019

Only Dougie saw blue sky on our trip to the Monadhliaths and he has a photograph to prove it. The rest of the group saw nary a sight of blue sky, or much else for that matter.Our first meet after the New Year took us to Glen Banchor to the west of Newtonmore, where we […]

Christmas Dinner, Kintail, December 2018

Storm Diana made her presence felt on Saturday. She forced one party to retreat from A’ Ghlas-bhienn and then reduced us to a crawl in Coire an Sgairne on Beinn Fhada before hastening us back to the warmth and shelter of the Kintail Outdoor Centre. It had seemed like a plan to sneak up sheltered […]
