Ben Wyvis meet, 2 December 2018

Despite gloomy forecasts, Sunday turned out to be a great day for the hill; sunny, very little wind and no rain until after dark.  Nine members answered the call and set out from Eileanach Lodge at the head of Glen Glass, to the north of the Ben – as it’s known locally. We followed a […]

Torridon Meet,16-18 November 2018

We had a full house at the weekend meet to Torridon, with glorious weather. Ten people stayed in the small but very nice Mol Mor bunkhouse at the head of Loch Torridon.  Four more members came as day visitors (Miha was enthusiastic enough to come both days); and a couple of people stayed in their vans. […]

Cairngorms day meet, 11 November 2018

Am Fear Liath Mòr made an appearance on Sunday.  More precisely, there were several  grey forms of both genders, appearing wraith like in the mist on Ben Macdhui on the club meet to the Cairngorms. The group set off with four destinations in mind: Michael to walk round the rims of the Northern Corries; Dougie […]

Lake District Meet, Patterdale 26-28 October 2018

The long drive to the Lake District was amply rewarded by some excellent hill walking in cold, sunny weather, albeit with some strong biting winds.  The picture above is of Fairfield and Grisedale Tarn. Seven members and Steve’s guest Terence, ensconced themselves in the smaller room at the George Starkey Hut in Patterdale. The hut is […]

Glen Feshie, 14 October 2018

We decided to take a less trodden approach to Sgor Gaoith, via Creag Follais, Clach Choutsaich and Sgoran Dubh Beag and Mor. Easy walking, with forest tracks and paths lower down and surprisingly dry ground on the hill after the amount of rain over the previous few days, made for a very sociable and chatty […]

Kinloch Rannoch meet, 28 September 2018

The squally autumnal weather did not deter the thirteen club members on the Kinloch Rannoch meet. A healthy number of Munros, Corbetts, Grahams and a Marilyn or two were climbed over the weekend. A fairly determined fight against the elements saw Masoud’s barbeque deliver delicious Iranian spiced chicken for dinner. Evidence of Maskelyne’s 18th Century […]

Cromdale hills, 16 Sept 2018

A wet forecast for the west and 40mph+ winds expected on the east coast mountains led us to the Cromdale hills, just east of Grantown on Spey.  A team of 10 folk, including one prospective new member and her friendly collies, turned up hoping at least to stay fairly dry. A short walk along the […]

Galloway meet, August 2018

The Galloway Hills were damp and misty for the IMC Loch Ken camping meet.  Nevertheless, the summits of a variety of Grahams, Corbetts and Donalds were trodden by various individuals and parties of the nine people on the meet.  Amongst the delightfully named summits were Cairnsmore of Fleet, the Merrick, Shalloch on Minnoch, Meikle Millyea, […]

Blair Atholl Hills, Sunday 19th August

Having climbed the height of Everest, the team then went on to add the height of Ben Nevis and then Snowdon, and at the same time walked the equivalent of the distance from Inverness to Dundee (11,250m and 220 km, cumulative height and distance for 9 people).  You have possibly guessed  from that introduction that […]

Mull camping meet, 3-4 August 2018

Five hardy souls braved the inclement weather forecast and the long journey to travel to Fidden Farm camp site on the Isle of Mull. Perched on the beach and overlooking Iona, this must rank as one of the best camping spots in the Highlands.   All five IMC members – Dougie, Michael, Nell, Miha and […]
