Winter walking in Scotland
Sat 15th Feb 2020
Last year a small group of us spent one week in a self-catering property in Roybridge, about 10 miles north of Fort William. Login to Contact the Organiser 'Stephen'
I am keen to organise a similar trip next year. I have found at least two quality cottages in Roybridge, both well-equipped and with four bedrooms.
Because Scotland is a long drive for most people, particularly from the south, and because days can easily be lost due to poor weather at this time of year, I would prefer to go for two weeks, from Saturday 15 th February. But if there were not enough takers for two weeks, I would happily go just for one week from 15 th February.
Both cottages cost a little below £ 600 per week which equates to slightly less than £ 100 pp per week based on 6 people going.
On previous holidays we have cooked one main communal evening meal each, with any "missing" meals being covered by various means.
Roybridge is about 10 miles north of Fort William and so is well placed for Glen Nevis and the North Face car park, with other large hills including Creag Meagaidh nearby. There are some smaller walks available as well.
If conditions allow I would want to do some big walks above the snowline requiring full winter clothing and equipment. Some of you would probably want to do easier routes, so it is very likely that we would walk in two or three sub-groups.
So, if anyone is seriously interested can you please email me, initially through the OD site, including your private email address - so I can communicate via a common email thread - and stating whether you are interested in going for:
Week 1 from 15 th February
Week 2 from 22 nd February
Please contact me if you have any questions!
