Torridon-ish Hut Meet 7th and 8th of October

Post by SarahS »

First hut meet of the new season - and it's an exciting adventure to Torridon! (ish)
Due to the lack of decent huts in the area we've had to look slightly further afield, so this hut is closer to Ullapool BUT it is on the doorstep of An Teallach... still plenty mountains about!

We are staying in the Badrallach Campsite, Bothy (Croft 9, Badrallach, Dundonnell, Garve IV23 2QP) https://www.badrallach.com/index.html on the 7th and 8th of October. We have sole use of this - see details here https://www.badrallach.com/stay/bothy.html. As it's such a long way you may want to book a few days either side - here are the prices for the site:

Camping Tariff
· Adult £7/night
· Child 2-16 (Under 2's Free) £3/night
· Car/camper/motorbike £3/night
· Tent/campervan £3/night
· Full-length Awning (doorway/porch awnings are free) £3/night
· Electric Hook-up £4/night

We are using our marvellous new hut booking system again, here are the deets - meet is open now! 12 Places available in the hut!

1. Log in to your account at https://www.leedsmc.org/login (not the same password / username as the Bulletin Board!)
2. Click the Membership drop down and select "My Details".
3. On the My Meets card select "Sign Up". Navigate to the meet you wish to sign up for. It will either say "Opens On xx/xx/xx" or "Sign Up".
4. To sign up for an open meet click "Sign Up". This will take you to the sign up page for that meet. You can also navigate to this page from the Meets Calendar (https://www.leedsmc.org/calendar).
5. On the meet page click the "Sign Up!" button. You should then see your name added to the list of Sign ups (pending).
6. Pending attendees are confirmed at the end of each day. If there are more attendees than places then places are assigned randomly on a daily basis, otherwise you will be confirmed automatically the next day.
7. To remove your pending sign up you can click "cancel sign up". You can only cancel as a pending attendee, once you have been confirmed on a meet you can only cancel by contacting the meet leader.

**PLEASE NOTE** If you've not paid your subs, you won't be given the option to sign up. If there is any issue, please get in touch with me. :D Any prospective members must have completed an application form and paid subs.

You will need to pay as soon as you book on to secure your place - via bank transfer - details are in the private section - MAKE SURE you detail your name and what you're paying for on the reference! It's £12 a night so total of £24 please.

I’m super-keen for this! Currently flexible for leave, can probably book it to match whoever I’m lift-sharing with

- edit: so much for super-keenness, a bunch of stuff has come up… trying to sort my life out so I can make it, but unsure as to whether I’ll succeed…

Unfortunately I have to work that weekend, I've summited An Teallach multiple times, wonderful scramble day out in the great wilderness,

"This fabled mountain is perhaps the most impressive in Britain"

although you are two hours from Torridon, Highley recommend climbing on the Aztec tower above Gairloch.

enjoy.
