Milehouse Meet 2018

Nine members attended a very active and sociable meet at Milehouse.
Paul, Paul,Stephen,Keith,Craig and Wendy spent a most enjoyable day in good winter conditions with a mixture of sunshine and squalls completing the round of the Newtonmore munros starting with the outlier, Carn Dearg and working their way clockwise round the Plateau to include Carn Sgulain and A Chailleach. Carn Dearg was ascended by a ‘sporting route’ up the South East ridge.

Blue skies were quickly taken over by grey followed by persistent rain when people started arriving in Falkland for the New Years Day walk. Shelter and a chance to mingle was provided at Wendy’s house before the decision was made just to get out and do it as it was not going to change! Well waterproofed a group of fifteen members guests and friends set off for the ascent of the East Lomond (424m) whilst the family groups headed off for a low level walk in the woodland.

Scramblers meet bikers, Polney (credit Wendy Georgeson)

Fourteen members of the club gathered in Dunkeld for a pre-Christmas meet, with walking, scrambling, mountain biking and/or tea and home baking on offer. Some adventure was already encountered when the group attempted to reach the car park above Polney. Alasdair managed to end up across the road, Dennis backed down it and the Tim ended up in a ditch trying to get out of his way. Fortunately, all club members eventually made it to the start point, where we split into two groups (a third group had also taken the more sensible option of a wander along the river).


Beinn Achaladair

Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th of December, 2017.

A good winter weather forecast encouraged a group of PMC’rs to quickly organise an ad hoc meet. Being Achaladair along with its neighbour Beinn a Chreachain was suggested by Keith and Paul and so on Sunday a group of five set off from Broxden to meet up with Neil at the car park near Achalladar farm. Neil, Keith, Paul M, Jeff, Stephen and Wendy had an enjoyable ascent in clear but intensely cold conditions with wonderful views all round of the mountain landscape.


Annual Dinner, Pitlochry

Friday 17th to Sunday 19th of November, 2017.

Once again we were blessed with cold and dry weather for the dinner weekend at Pitlochry though there was a very cold NW wind on the Saturday. Meall Chuaich was ascended by a party of 9 enjoying good views and sharing chocolate cake with a party celebrating a Munro completion. The westerly 2 Munro tops of Beinn a Ghlo and Ben Vuirich were also climbed.
