Aite Cruinnichidh, Roybridge

Aite Cruinnichidh is an incredible venue with more than enough winter activities within the surrounding area. The options are almost endless and it would be impossible to fit them all into a single weekend. Additionally, with a local pub there is the added opportunity of whisky sampling in the evenings.

The accommodation is situated 2 miles east of Roybridge on the A86 opposite the Glen Spean Lodge Hotel. (grid ref. 301811, OS sheet 41). The McofS publication "Scottish clubs' huts" describes the accommodation as, "Warm, comfortable, friendly country hostel in converted barn, set in stunning scenery near Roybridge. Ideal location for walking and climbing (Creag Meagaidh, Ben Nevis), canoeing and mountain biking.". The hut provides a good sized kitchen, showers, varying sized rooms and even duvets so no excuses. There are also local opportunities for ski touring and alpine skiing at Aviemore or Fort William, which are both quite close (less than 1 Hour drive away) and if all else fails there are memorable shopping experiences available(even wrist gaiters if you lean that way!).

To claim a very limited place send me a cheque, made payable to C Marsden as I will settle up with the warden on the 12th. I will try and make it to the pub before hand, but if you have any questions e mail or phone me.
