We are about to put our winter programme online. Normally walking clubs walk on a Saturday or a Sunday (which we do) but this year we are also adding midweek walks to our programme for those people who have a bit of free time during the week, and would would like to walk with a group at the same time.
I will be leading on our first midweek walk which is the Loch Lomond Ben Vorlich on Tuesday 1st October: Ardlui to Tarbet via BEN VORLICH 943m (NN295124) 13.5 miles OS Sheet 56 Grade A
We will be travelling by train, using a Daytripper ticket which can be bought from any station. These can be bought in advance, cost £11.20 for an adult, or £19.80 for two adults, and are valid for most bus and rail journeys within the SPT area (unfortunately not citylink buses). We will meet outside Costa Coffee at 09.00hrs at Glasgow Queen Street station and take the 09.03 Oban/Mallaig service. For those who live in the West End of Glasgow, this train also calls at Dalmuir at 0922.
The train is due to arrive at Ardlui at 1039.
We will return on the 2006 from Arrochar, due back into Dalmuir at 2100 and Glasgow Queen Street at 2118.
If anyone is interested in joining our club on this walk, please contact me beforehand at email@example.com, or by PM. 8)
I've contacted MCofS and Dave Gibson was very helpful.
As for changing the rules of the club, I think on balance they are right. We do accept people with disabilities, but all members have to accept that they choose to attend walks within their physical capabilities.
