Ronnan Cottage, Aultbea (north of Poolewe)
Grades 2 & 3
Ronnan Cottage, owned by the LSCC, is an impressive venue and location. It overlooks the sea in Aultbea between Gairloch and Dundonnell. There are numerous walking opportunities within a short drive of the cottage, including the renowned Fisherfield Forest together with a range of remote Grahams and Corbetts requiring a full hill day. One can also wander along the rocky shore with walks between the extremes. The cottage sleeps eight and is well apportioned but quite small so, there may be a need for mixed gender dormitories. The precise cost of the accommodation remains to be confirmed but the four nights will in the region of £40.

Club Retreat Weekend
For a number of years, the club has organised a retreat held every two years which has become known as a “weekend without boots”. This has been held in a residential centre, and we have had a variety of speakers including ministers and those working with Christian organisations. The next Club Retreat will be in the autumn of 2023.
