This contains details of all the longer trips we have planned for the club this year. These trips include a stay away from home, normally for a long weekend. Transport to these is typically arranged by sharing private cars rather than using a minibus, as this gives more flexibility to come and go.
You must be a member of the club to come on one of these trips. Please contact one of the committee if you want to join, and we will be glad to tell you more about the club.
|Date||Status||Organiser and contact||Where?||Type of walk|
|Thu 17th - Mon 21st Feb||Complete see trip report||Hazel Fix||Borrowdale YHA, Lake District||This is our 'traditional' winter walking trip to the Lakes. While the paths are generally good, the time of year means that snow is likely and it can be extremely cold - correct equipment is needed for high winter walks! But if you want to get out your ice axe and crampons, this is your chance.|
||Easier walking in limestone country, generally not as high as
the Lakes but very scenic. You can do the 3 Peaks if you feel
like a challenge (Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside)

(Penycwm), SW Wales
||Beautiful coastal path walking
in South-West Wales. Plus a chance to stay at one of the best
hostels in the UK (5 stars)!

|13-17 October||Complete, see report
||David Haigh||Scotland (Torridon)||Once again a chance to bag some Munros - this time to a very
remote (and beautiful) corner of the Western Highlands.
Alternatively, we may head to the southern Highlands (Oban), next to
the sea - but still with Munros available!
||Lake District (Patterdale and Windermere)
||As the Feb. trip, the Lakes offer great high walking and this time of year is quiet. However it can be a bit wet if you are unlucky!|
If you want to go on one of the above walks, contact the organiser for details.
