Fri 18 - Mon 21 September 2009
OK it's time for another Scottish meet when hopefully the midges will have died away, although I'm making no guarantees having already experienced them twice this year at over 1000m!
Base will be Glencoe where there are many accommodation options including:
Figures in brackets give distances to the Clachaig Inn which will be the base for the weekends socialising. Your accommodation choice may be influenced by these staggering distances! There is also another independent bunkhouse near the youth hostel but I have heard mixed reports about it.
Format will be the usual i.e.meet in the pub on Friday night to discuss plans etc, walk Saturday, meet again in the pub Saturday night, walk Sunday etc etc. Very informal and no rambler style organised walks!
However Iain Gallagher and ptc* are discussing the possibility of scrambling/navigation/lightweight campcraft workshops and will post details shortly for anyone who is interested.
So get yourselves organised for accommodation and we'll see you in the Clachaig on the Friday night.
Hey AT you're a month too early for the Clachaig Beer Festival so can't give you the distinction of organising a piss up in a preverbial brewery
Never the less I shall be there and look forward to meeting you Peakbagger
Jesus, is it only half a mile to the Red Squirrel? Feels more of a walk than that sometimes.
Anyway, I'll put myself in as a maybe. I'll have no idea until nearer the time really but I haven't seen anybody in ages so I will try.

Gordy - you should try it in the dark without a headtorch at Hogmanay! Hope you make it - you could alway bring the wee one!

Sounds good to us!
Jamie just remember that even if you do have to say south that weekend Nicky is more than welcome to come and join us
Jamie ou give your darkest secrets away yourself, Nicky is the one usually trying to get you to shut up
It'll be lovely to see you both
So, let me see, the meet is going to be held in Glencoe somewhere deep in the Polish or Czech countryside? According to this link.
"...the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; those who are in the shadows of life; the sick, the needy the handicapped and submariners. " ~ Last Speech of Hubert H. Humphrey
