2. Cork Backpackers June Trip to Ben Nevis Scotland.

Let us know if you want to join us!

(a) Flight: Ryanair from Dublin to Edinburgh Departing Friday the 1st of June @ 12.35 and returning from Edinburgh on Monday the 4th at 15.40.  Expect to pay between €80 to €100 return – you need to book for yourself.

(b) Accommodation: Scotland Hotel and Leisure Club,  Pitlochry, Scotland – expect to pay about  €136 to share and about €250 for your own room for the three nights – you will need to book for yourself

(c) Car hire- this will be required.  If you are willing to drive or want to join in another car let us know.

Please note that this will be a challenging in total  5 to 7 hour climb at a good steady  pace. The accommodation is an hour and 45 minutes from Ben Nevis so it will be a very early start.  We need to get climbing early so as to avoid getting caught in the large crowds coming back down.  If you are game I would advise you to get booking quickly and let us know when you have done so.  This will help us plan the car hire situation.

We are also planning an alternative June weekend getaway in Ireland.  I will send out details when I have them

3. Camino Walk 2018

Neil Farrell and Dan White would like to put a call out for any club members that would be interested in joining them on the Camino this year. They hope to walk from Logrono, where they finished up with a group from the club two years ago, to Burgos. The distance between Logrono and Burgos is just over 120 kilometres and the walk will take six days. Neil and Dan will be in Counihans from 9pm next Wednesday (March 21st) to meet up with anyone else who is interested.
