Blairgowrie and District Next Steps





Ideas for International Women's Day please.  Carn Aosda ticks lots of boxes, accessible, parking for coaches, toilets, not too difficult for the very elderly, enough of a challenge with the usual weather and an easy escape.  However alternative ideas more than welcome.  Details at this link.  Alternatively as we have done before a trek like Jock's Road can be undertaken though numbers have to be limited.  Recently a group claimed the highest number of ascenders 117 to a Munro on Ben Wyvis.  So there's the challenge, we could with planning and recruitment do better!   Though I would suggest something more demanding - say Glas Maol!  But maybe not on 8th March.


Away Trip for 2017 staying at Lochranza Youth Hostel to climb two if the remaining Corbetts on Arran.  Hostel booked for 11th and 12th May.  Maximum of 8 spaces in two rooms.  This is a demanding walk with over 1200m of ascent.  Balance due from participants by end of February please.


Camping  In planning are a couple more 1 night introductory sessions, followed by another sequence of 2, 3 and 4 night (3, 4 and 5 days) treks.  Spaces have to be limited for the multi-night events as the availability of a large area suitable for many tents is unknown.


I will have a sign up form in the folder.
