Weekend meets

Throughout the year the club has a programme of weekend meets (usually in climbing huts, although occasionally camping) on average once a month. Members wanting to book on a weekend meet should contact James Dalgarno.

Payment of hut fees:

  • either pay hut fees to the contact person, ideally on the meet itself;
  • make a bank transfer to the club bank account using as a reference a specific code for the meet which the contact person or James can give you.

Please pay the fees as soon as possible after the meet. This will reduce the amount of time the contact person (usually James) has to spend collecting money.

Booking policy: see the meets booking policy for information on how long before a meet you may book, and also the club policy on cancellations.

Guests: a member may bring a non-member as a guest to at most two meets - see the meets booking policy.


There seem to be no Coronavirus restrictions, at the time of writing.
However, Mountaineering Scotland has a page containing up-to-date information on Coronavirus restriction at:   Coronavirus restrictions, which you may wish to check.
