Covid-19 - getting back outdoors
All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend.
Groups may choose to implement a booking system for their events, or revert to the standard "attendance" system. Everyone attending an event will be required to provide their name and contact details to the event contact for Track and Trace purposes.
Local restrictions may affect any events at short notice, please be aware that some last minute cancellations may be neccessary. Registering your attendance on an event, and ensuring that your profile is set to allow general messages from GOC, will ensure you can be informed of any last minute changes.
Aviemore Mountain Walking
For our late autumn meet we will return to Aviemore by popular demand. I have provisionally booked a hostel in Glen Feshie, about 8 miles from Aviemore. This is conditional on the current Scottish Government COVID 19 restrictions for groups meeting indoors being relaxed to allow the meet to take place.
The area offers great walking in the high mountains of the Cairngorms. The Glen Feshie Hostel's location will allow us to walk the Glen Feshie Munros of Sgorr Gaoith and Mullach Clach a'Bhlair directly from the door, plus there are attractive lesser hills and low level walks to do if the weather is poor.
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.
