Isle of Mull, 29th - 31st March 2013

The Isle of Mull ultimately turned out to be the location of this year's 'Mystery Meet'. Although after numerous leaks, the word 'mystery' is used in the loosest of terms...

Newtonmore, 23rd March 2013

We set off around 9:30am from Newtonmore with the aim of bagging A' Chailleach (Monadh Liath). A fairly easy walk ensued which didn't feature the conditions warned of by MWIS (initially).

This was DURC's second trip of 2013 to the Isle of Skye, once again staying at the Glen Brittle Memorial Hut. If anything the weather was even better this time round and we were treated to some amazing views - see the video below!

Mountain Mind Quiz, 13th March 2013

The annual Mountain Mind Quiz is a chance for clubs to pit their knowledge against each other in competition for a trophy, with all proceeds going to a good cause: Tayside Mountain Rescue. This year it was organised by Ancrum Mountaineering Club, and we sent a team along to the Queen's Hotel with no real expectations other than a bit of fun.
