First Scottish Meet! 10th 11th January, Kincraig

Postby Will S » Sat Nov 30, 2019 2:32 pm

Our fist Scottish Winter meet this year will be at the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club's hut. Milehouse cottage, Kincraig:
https://www.ladiesscottishclimbingclub.org/huts/milehouse-cottage/

The hut is about 20 minutes from Aviemore and half an hour from the Caingorm Mountain carpark, so is an excellent base for winter climbing in the corries.

Laggan Wolftrax trail centre is only 40 mins away and is totally ace if you’re into mountain biking, or there's a sudden turbo thaw.

The hut itself has a full kitchen, hot electric showers, solid fuel stove and storage for 4 bikes. There's two bunk rooms with alpine style sleeping platforms so you'll need to bring sleeping bags. The heating and electric showers run on meters so bring some pound coins!

Also just round the corner is the loch insh sailing club which has an excellent bar. Shot put world record holder Randy Barnes could probably throw a stone to the bar from the cottage.

Booking for this meet will open on the 10th of December. To book a place please post a cheque to me (address in the private section) or hand me a cheque at the wall. Cheques received in the post on Tuesday the 10th will get the first of the 12 places. The cheque should be for £20.00 payable to the Leeds Mountaineering Club. If you would like to stay for longer please get in touch with me and I'll see what I can arrange. I'm thinking of going up on the Thursday night if the conditions are looking good.

Yep, looks like it. I've finally forgotten how much driving there is.

That's a bit harsh on Aviemore. Fingers crossed for good conditions.

I'll bring my booking fee to the wall on Tuesday. I've got some Christmas chocolate money going spare - would you accept that in lieu of a cheque? It looks like gold so it must be worth something.
