Current Programme


 SCHC is affiliated to Mountaineering Scotland, and we have been following their guidelines throughout the Covid-19 lockdowns.   Covid-19 has not gone away however, and we are still requiring people to be cautious, wear masks in appropriate indoor situations, wash and sanitise hands and maintain distancing. We will aim to ensure good ventilation. As the rules have relaxed, the Club has begun to organise weekend meets again, although these could be cancelled at short notice if further government restrictions are introduced. We are strongly encouraging participants to take a Lateral Flow Test for Covid-19 prior to arriving at residential meets

Our programme for the next few months is shown below. We hope that you will be interested in attending one or more of these meets. Please contact Visit us on Facebook.
If you want to know more about the hills or area where we’re holding a meet, check out the Scotland and Scottish Mountains section of our links.
We ask that you are realistic and consider your fitness, resilience, ability and equipment before selecting a meet that is suitable to you. For example, the degree of fitness, resilience, ability and equipment that are required for a winter day in the Cairngorms, are of a completely different order of magnitude to those required for a summer walk in the Trossachs. You should be responsible for your own safety and enjoyment and consider that of others so that everyone has an enjoyable time and no one is put at undue risk or inconvenience. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.This may be the Marylin, Creag nam Mial or another hill in the area,should there be requests for it.
