About the Club


Any relaxation from lockdown needs to take account of all factors at any particular time.  Check government guidelines and maintain social distancing.

If you are ill or suspect that you have been in recent contact with the virus – don’t meet up with others (see also the Meets guidance).

Club members are advised that they are responsible for their own decisions which should take proper account of the safety of themselves and others.

For any activity members should make their own research of guidance and information available.  The club advises all members to follow BMC guidelines. Advice from Mountaineering Scotland may also be helpful.

The hut is closed and bookings cancelled. Camping at the hut is not permitted when the hut is closed.

Meanwhile stay safe
