The Isle of Islay


Event Details


National Lockdowns

Due to national lockdowns in all UK nations, all GOC events are currently cancelled.

We look forward to being able to restart activities once local and national restrictions permit.

General information

Easter on Islay

This is the deferred meet from Easter 2020.  It is hoped that this meet can go ahead at Easter 2021, but in the case that it cannot, I will try and move our booking to later in 2021.

The meet is initially open to those that booked for 2020.  Spaces may come available if people drop out.

Sticking with the island theme, it is hoped we can meet in Easter 2021 on the island of Islay in the Inner Hebrides.  This is quite a flat island, rising to a high point of just below 500m, but there is plenty of worthwhile walking to be had on the rough hills, spectacular coastlines and sandy beaches.

The isle of Jura, with its famous Paps is a short ferry journey across the Sound of Islay, and it is hoped we can include a walk up Beinn an Oir in our itinerary for the weekend.

People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.

Terrain / Difficulty

A verity of walking - coastal, moorland and mountain.
