About Us

The club was founded in 1991 when a group of friends decided that there were enough like-minded people in the area to sustain a club dedicated to mountain activities.

We support a wide range of activities from coastal path walks to winter mountaineering in Scotland, the Alps and beyond; from hiking and scrambling to mountain biking and trail running. The journal archives give an idea of the events we’ve done before.

We organize trips in the UK (usually over a weekend), local walks and talks throughout the year. We also run some longer trips, often abroad. Check out the forthcoming events on the right. The club is very much self-organizing, so if there is an event you’re especially interested in, let us know. The size of the club often allows us to exclusively book hostels, bunkhouses and other accommodation.

We a not a profit making group. We charge a small amount for membership which is used by the club to be able to secure accommodation for future trips.

The club has been affiliated to the British Mountaineering Council since its inception. The BMC represents climbers, hill-walkers and mountaineers and are actively promoting and protecting these activities.
