Weekend Trip to the Corran area from
Friday 18 to Sunday 20 January 2019
Main map required is LandRanger 41 Ben Nevis, Fort William & surrounding area,
but you may need others if you travel further afield.
The response to the Corran weekend notice (below) has been great, and accommodation for up to 15 persons has now been confirmed. Additional places may be available .. please get in touch as soon as possible if you would like to join this weekend.
The cost for the weekend is is confirmed at £40 for members and £53 for non-members. No payment is required at this time, but I'll be in touch a few weeks beforehand to ask for payment and make arrangements for travel, meals and hill routes.
The January 2019 club weekend outing might still seem a long time away, but weekend organisers have had to make bookings well in advance to secure accommodation!!
The January weekend was planned for the Kinlochleven area, but our usual haunt (the Blackwater Hostel) is closed for maintenance. However, I've made a provisional booking at the Corran Bunkhouse, located right next to the Corran Ferry on the "mainland" side. If our numbers are sufficient we could have exclusive use of the entire smaller bunkhouse, which sleeps 12 in three twin rooms, one double/twin room and a room with four single beds. The subsidised cost would be around £40 - £60 per person for the weekend, but this is dependent on numbers and final confirmation.
There are plenty of hills and lower-level walks in the area. Kinlochleven and Fort William are both within easy driving distance and the Ardgour hills can be reached via the regular ferry service.
The Corran Bunkhouse is an independent hostel and the accommodation looks excellent. It has all the usual facilities, plus a drying room, WiFi and a bicycle store. The rooms all have en-suite bathrooms.
If you are interested in coming along for this weekend, please let me know as soon as possible. Even if you are not 100% sure, please get in touch so that I can gauge the level of interest. Please respond by Sunday 19 August at the latest, so that the accommodation booking can be finalised. Note that no payment is required at this stage.
