Craigallan Winter Bookings
I have a high occupancy rate at Craigallan this winter so I hope this update may be useful.
We have three Rucksack Club meets to look forward to at the hut over the winter period so please contact the meet organisers directly to book in. The snow is building up nicely.
There is some midweek availability but weekends are pretty full. When other clubs are using Craigallan I am always happy to ask if there is space for small groups of our Members so it might be worth checking even when a club booking is in place. This arrangement usually works well. Those in charge of external bookings often have late changes in numbers and they know that RC Members may ask at short notice. Please remember that our current health guidance requires booking in advance.
Weekend Bookings are as follows
January 28/29. Rucksack Club meet – Ros Murray
February 4/5. MUMC meet (expected to be full)
February 11/12. Five beds booked
February 18/19. Merseyside Mountaineering Club
February 25/26. Rucksack Club meet – Kevin Wheeler
March 4/5. Climbers Club
March 11/12. Austrian Alpine Club
March 18/19. Rucksack Club meet – Danny Struggles
March 25/26. Red Rope (Sue Whittle)
April 8/9. Leeds Mountaineering Club
The best way to contact me for Craigallan enquiries is always by email. I am able to respond on the same day most of the time.
