Weekend Meet, Seana Bhraigh, 30 October to 1 November

Friday 30 October to 1 November. The plan is to walk/cycle from Oykel Bridge through Strath Mulzie and camp at Loch a’ Choire Mhoir near to the north ridge of Seana Bhraigh. It is normally permitted to drive up Strath Mulzie as far as a “walker’s car park” about 500m short of Corriemulzie Lodge (Grid Ref NH328954), although that may have changed with Covid-19. This meet will coincide with date of the normal Halloween meet and therefore costume is recommended (“near mandatory”). Members are free to do whatever they like, but Seana Bhraigh and the Corbett Carn Ban are obvious targets.

The event will comply with Mountaineering Scotland’s COVID-19 guidance.  This is likely to mean that numbers are restricted.   Please also read Mountaineering Scotland’s guidance on Wild Camping.

Weekend Meet, Fisherfield, 9-11 Oct 2020

Wild camping meet in the Fisherfields to suit Corbett and Munro baggers alike (or those just wishing to soak up the ambience).  It will begin with a scenic walk in from Poolewe to the Causeway by Carnmore (NG 975 760).  Either camp here or stay at the bothy (at last inspection this was a grotty place) – if allowed by then!  Then possibly continuing over towards Shenevall onto Dundonnell or back to Poolewe.
