PATTERDALE MEET, GEORGE STARKEY HUT
Jan 14 – Jan 16 all-day

Description:

Meet Organiser: David Kirsfelds

Roll up, roll up, it’s the return of your favourite January Mynydd hut meet! We’re staying at the George Starkey hut in Patterdale, within striking distance of the Helvellyn massif. If you fancy a romp up Swirral / Striding Edge or some winter climbs on Brown Cove Crags then this is the meet for you!

To book, simply (virtually) slide £28 into the treasurer’s back pocket and send David Kirsfelds an email to let him know you’re coming. More information will be sent to attendees nearer the time to see if there’s any appetite for a communal cook-up or such.

Getting there: The hut is on the main A592 1 mile south of Glenridding. The track to Side Farm Campsite is on the immediate left of the hut, this leads to the hut car park which is at the back of the hut.

WINTER BIVVY MEET @ To be confirmed
Jan 28 – Jan 30 all-day

Who says you can’t run a camping meet in January!?

As promised, this will be the 2nd weekend meet of a hopefully stacked year.
I’m totally open to where we go on this one and as I’m expecting the keen / dubious ratio to be somewhat skewed in sanity’s favour we can choose a venue based around thouse attending.
I was initially thinking somewhere North Wales to get the best (worst) of the weather but really up for anything. Romp over the Glyders and a bivvy on Tryfan… anything goes!
Equally happy closer to home and theres plenty of miserable places in the peak to cut the travel time down!

WINTER MEET, ROYBRIDGE
Feb 19 – Feb 26 all-day

We’ll be heading to Roybridge in the heart of the Scottish Highlands for our annual Scottish Winter meet. Photos show Mynydd members on this meet over the last 5 years or so – need I say more???

Roybridge is perfectly placed for climbing on the Ben and Creag Meagaidh with Glencoe and the Cairngorms also within striking range. In addition to the climbing, there is hill walking to suit all tastes, from the tourist track up the Ben to Ledge route if you fancy something a little steeper, skiing, bothying, snow holing, etc.

We have 28 beds booked in the Àite Cruinnichidh hostel – details in the journal or reply here or pm me (£140 to the usual account to secure a place). When it all comes together (weather, conditions, partner) Scottish Winter is MAGIC – get involved folks!!!!!!!!

Feel free to send me a message if your interested!

(N.B. this postcode doesn’t mark the exact location, but the marker on the map below is accurate – follow the Crafnant Road steeply up the hill from Trefriw. Continue straight on, past the lake until you reach a gate. Pass through the gate and up the steep gravel track in front of you until you arrive at the car park):

HARRIS & LEWIS WHIT TRIP
May 28 – Jun 4 all-day

A reminder that I will be confirming bunkhouse numbers towards the end of this month at The Laxdale Holiday Park (https://www.laxdaleholidaypark.com/) in Stornoway. Thanks to those that have already reserved their place in the bunkhouse.

We have provisionally reserved the bunkhouse for sole use by the club that sleeps 16 people (4 bedrooms of 4 bunks each). The campsite will hold this reservation until the end of this year when we will have to confirm how many of the beds we want – we will only have sole use of the bunkhouse if we fill all the available places.
If we don’t fill all the bunks by the end of the year the campsite will be taking bookings from outside the club. If you are still undecided you can still contact the campsite yourself in the New Year and arrange your own booking subject to availability.

The cost of staying in the bunkhouse is £140 for the week. If you decide to come you will need to pay the full amount (it would be £280 for two people etc) into the Mynydd’s bank account by BACS:
Sort code: 01-05-51 Account number: 40582787 Reference text: “Lewis”
Your booking will be secured once the full amount has been paid. Email the treasurer (treasurer.mynydd@gmail.com) and I (michael_tempest@sky.com) to confirm payment has been made.
For those not wishing to stay in the bunkhouse the following options are available and can be booked directly with Laxdale Holiday Park. Check their website for more information:

Campervans/Tin tents: From £23 pppn with electric hook-up (£18 without)
Camping: From £13 pppn
Bunkhouse is £140 for the week (£20pppn)
Ferries timetables and prices are available from the Caledonian Macbrayne website https://www.calmac.co.uk/ . Options are either Ullapool to Stornoway (very close to the campsite) or Uig (Skye) to Tarbert (Harris).
