Scottish Meet 2016

16 - 23 February 2016

The Elphin Caving Centre (ECC) is a renovated and extended building in Elphin 24 km north of Ullapool.

It has self-catering accomodation for 20 people, gas and wood fires, toilets, hot showers, gas rings for cooking, a microwave oven, parking for eight cars et cetera.

It also has the best location of any caving hut in the entire country with a superb view of Cul Mor, Suilven and Canisp from the front door - three mountains of 849, 731 and 846 metres respectively.

The ECC is to the right (east) of the main road just after the telephone box on the left when you are travelling north through Elphin.


Pembroke Meet Write-up

August 2015

I left Cumbria on the Friday morning for the arse numbing long ride down, pausing in Shropshire at Steve’s house for a bite and a brew. We both rode down to Bosherston together, however I should say that I rode down trailing in the wake of Steve, unable to match his riding skill’s and ability push on, all way outside my comfort zone. On arrival Marcus and John were already there, John had left London that morning and broken his journey by a mountain biking session on route. Trefalen Farm camp site is in a cracking location on the headland above the unspoilt beach of Broadhaven (South), a little lacking in facilities but very quiet and a nice level pitch.

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.
