Formed in 1925, the club is ‘junior’ only in being a feeder club for young aspirants to hone their skills prior to joining the ‘Senior’ SMC.
We are part of a UK-wide mountaineering club with sections in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Lochaber and Perth. Our section represents the club south of the Scottish border. We organise monthly weekend meets around the UK and as our name implies have a particular fondness for Scotland in all her moods. The club is open to all adults (18 years +) from anywhere in the UK.
We walk, scramble, climb (rock and ice), bike, ski and sail in mountainous regions with many members venturing further afield - Alps, Himalayas, Jordan, Peru...
We hope these pages give you an insight into our activities and encourage you to join us. While the pictures here are our most dramatic - we also enjoy lots of easy-going hill walking, scrambling and there is always a warm welcome at the end of the day.
