The club was founded in 1969 and caters for people of all ages who enjoy hillwalking, climbing and winter mountaineering.
We run monthly bus outings from September to June,
usually on the first Sunday of the month. Regular destinations include
Glencoe, Arran, Cairngorms, Glen Nevis and the Lake District. Regular
weekend meetings are also held at club huts, bunkhouses and hostels.
Our indoor meetings are held monthly, 8pm, at the
British Legion Hall,
7 Bosfield Place
We enjoy a varied programme of social activites,
guest speakers and often humorous talks by club members.
Annual events include a Christmas Social, Burns Supper, ceilidh and hotel weekend. Please browse our site and click here to contact the club secretary if you require further information.
