Weekend Trip to the Newtonmore Hostel from
Friday 19 to Sunday 21 November 2021
Probable maps required are LandRanger 35 Kingussie & Monadhliath Mountains,
and 36 Grantown, Aviemore & Cairngorm area.
The November weekend trip will be to the Newtonmore Hostel, where the club has spent some great weekends in the past. The hostel has room for 10 people in three rooms (4+4+2) and is well equipped, including a wood-burning stove. We have to book the whole hostel, so would have the entire place to ourselves for the weekend. The cost will therefore depend on how many people come along: £36 per person for the weekend if we fill the hostel up.
Travel will be by car pool. We can discuss final car sharing arrangements and hill plans closer to the time.
There are many opportunities for hillwalking, low-level walks and cycling in the area. If you have hill plans in mind or would like some help finding or working out some suitable routes, please let me know.
At this time, we have first refusal for the weekend and I have promised the owners that we would confirm our booking within two weeks.
If you would like to come along for the weekend to Newtonmore, please let me know as soon as possible and no later than Friday 22 October.
At that point, I will let everybody know what the final cost for the weekend is. If there are no objections, and the numbers are sufficient, I will confirm our booking with the hostel and be in touch about payment.
Cornel Brozio, Newtonmore Organiser
