Social Groups

We have started these social groups for our members to meet other members within the club that share the same interests or just to start something new.




Social Groups


Hill Walking Group

The Hill walking group had a fantastic walk up their first Munro – Glas Tulaichean, the weather was brilliant giving everyone the best views of the surrounding mountains.


The next walk is to the Baudy Meg hill at Glen Tanar on  SUNDAY 18th August meeting at 9.30am Banchory Golf Club car park.  Distance approx 15k –  Height 500m – time approx 41/2 hours.

Our next Friday walk will be on Friday 30th August which will be up Lochnagar.

Please contact to let her know you’re going or to get more information.

If you would like to start walking but think that the Hill Walking Group might be too strenuous then why not join the Low Level walking group which is walking on Monday 19th August to Glen Dye and Charr Bothy – 5-6 miles
