UK Mountaineering Week
UK Mountaineering Week - Friday 10th September to Sunday 19th September
To be respectful of the Glen Brittle camp-site and of other groups and individuals in these sensitive times, the two meet leaders, have, with the full agreement and support of the committee agreed that this meet should be by advance booking with the meet leaders only. Hopefully one of the two meet leaders will be there from the late afternoon or early evening of Friday 10th September. Feel free to travel whenever works for you, and of course, do come for just a few days if that is what fits best. The meet leaders will try and co-ordinate.
This will be a long week spanning two weekends of camping, socialising, climbing, scrambling, walking, running, swimming and, yes Mountaineering. There are just a few select locations in the UK where the term 'mountaineering' is really justified when applied to most activities, and the Cuillin range of the Isle of Skye is one of them.
On a more serious note, The Cuillin on Skye is a serious place for scrambling, climbing and mountaineering. If you have any queries or wish to book a place please contact either Andy Stratford or Gareth Williams directly.
PS - usually by this time in the season the midges appetite has been sated and you are less likely to end up getting eaten alive!
Due to Covid restrictions many meets have been cancelled and remaining meets are members only. Please check back after the restrictions are lifted.
Different meets require varying levels of experience and fitness. Please speak to the meet organiser before the meet if you are concerned about any issues with regard to the meet or your ability to participate in the activities proposed. Contact details can be found on the Contact Us page.
If you are considering coming along to a club meet, please read the following:
"I accept that mountaineering, climbing and walking are activities with a risk of personal injury or death. I am aware of and shall accept these risks and wish to participate in these activities voluntarily and shall be responsible for my own actions and involvement."
