Etterick camping weekend

For the bank holiday weekend, Mel will be leading two walks on Saturday the 26th and Sunday the 27th up in the Scottish Borders in the Ettrick Valley near Selkirk.

Here’s her description of the weekend plans:

So the August bank holiday weekend (26th and 27th of August), I’m heading up to the Scottish Borders to explore some of the walking around there. I have put both the walks I’m planning to walk 1 & walk 2. I’m going to be camping up there at the Honey Cottage campsite from the Friday night so anyone who is wanting a trip away feel free to join me. They’re pretty easygoing about campers so people can come along and stay any of the nights or not as they wish. If you’re wanting to camp please book directly with the campsite themselves (or at least let them know you’re coming – they don’t take payment at time of booking) and just pop me a message to say you’ll be there and I’ll choose a camping area with enough room. There’s a pub a mile walk from the site for food (stop serving at 8pm) or another one 8 miles up the road which serves until later in the evening.

If you are coming along on either of the walks could you please text me by the Friday night at 6pm since once I leave work and head to Ettrick Valley I’ll be unlikely to have any signal.

Langdale Camping Sat 8th July

Some of us will be camping in Langdale at the National trust campsite or wild camping if there’s no room. We plan to eat either at the Stickle Barn or the Old Dungeon Gyhll depending on numbers

txt or msg Matthew on 07878352150 if you’re coming along that night I will also be standing outside the National trust lansdale campsite reception from 6 till 6:15pm  on Saturday evening if you want to find me.

It’s a bit of a rushed social the next one will be in September when the Lake District calms down after summer madness.


10 in 10

Update in case it wasn’t clear this not a Summittgood group activity, its a private thing we’re doing just putting it on here, to explain why there are no walks on this weekend. If you want to volunteer we always need more walk leaders. Ask us about volunteering, its not that scary!

Saturday the 17th June most of the club walk leaders are taking part in a charity event to raise money for MS a subject close to one of our friends hearts.

The challenge is 10 mountains in 10 Hours. As such the next day we will all be too knackered to lead any walks so they won’t be any put on.
