If you have a Hill Walk, Climb, Cycle or Other Activity you would like included then why don't you plan it! Don't be frightened to do so, cos we’ll be delighted to help.  Just ask for assistance.  To include an event on this page please enter the details in the members area or email Irene Cahill with all the necessary details.  

If your on our potential members list and need more information then please contact one of the committee via the contacts page.

Many of our members go out informally on a regular basis in small groups/car loads depending on weather conditions etc. with too short a notice to add to this events page. Therefore all members and potential members are advised to attend our club nights as often as they can to find out what's going on and do some networking!

For full contact details and route maps for each event please use the members area.

Please review the club Participation Statement for details on safety and responsibility on club events.

June 2020
Saturday event has been added or changed in last 30 days 6/6/2020 Day walk Arran Traverse
Facebook Event Page
Craggy's annual traverse of Arran from Lochranza to Brodick.

Distance 21km
Time 9 to 10hrs
Ascent 1600m

SUBJECT TO WEATHER! Catch 0700 ferry then bus to Lochranza arriving 0843. Route is from the Distillery up Gleann Easan on to Caisteal Abhail, Cir Mhor, round the back of A'Chir and on to Beinn Tarsuinn and Beinn Nuis (or Beinn a'Chlaibhain).

Ascent is more than Ben Nevis (and distance much longer) so a good level of hill fitness required! There is an escape route after Cir Mhor down to Glen Rosa which reduces the amount of ascent but only knocks a couple of km off the distance so still a very committing walk which will take around 9 to 10 hours. Return on 1920 ferry.

Good training walk for anyone planning on doing the Mamores traverse in two weeks time!

Remember the club does not provide leaders - everyone is responsible for their own navigation and safety so bear this in mind if coming on this walk (there may be other less demanding walks arranged on the same day - keep an eye on the FB page for details).
