Established in 1889 the Scottish Mountaineering Club has been at the forefront of climbing and mountaineering in Scotland for over 100 years. Members, both past and present, have included many of Scotland's most influential climbers and mountaineers. Find out more.
In May, seven recent joiners to the Club met the President, Dave Broadhead, at Lagangarbh for the first of this year’s Welcome meets, the meet also being hosted by Geoff Cohen and David Myatt.
The Club's smallest hut, the Naismith is centrally situated for climbing and walking in the Northwest highlands from Ardmair, Reiff and Stac Pollaidh in the south to Sheigra and Foinaven in the north, plus all points in between. Maximum daylight for a week-long meet at the Naismith hut.
The annual UK clubs' alpine meet organised by the Alpine Club, this year held at Camping du Glacier D'Argentière.
Following the success of the sea kayak meet to the Summer Isles in May, this meet is to the Ross of Mull to climb on cliffs only accessible by kayak.
The SMC organises an annual aspirant meet in August which offers plenty of rock climbing options.
After a few years absence we are delighted to announce the return of a painting and drawing meet at Lagangarbh.
The SMC maintains a webcam and weather station located on top of the CIC hut. Being on the west coast of Scotland and the altitude the hut is situated at the hut is often bombarded by severe storms, especially in winter. The webcam faces the North Face of Ben Nevis, and in the middle of the picture can been seen North East Buttress and The Orion Face.
