Day Meets

The Grampian Club arranges monthly Day Meets 10 months of the year, usually on the second or third weekend. On each day meet there are different options for walks provided.

They are of varying grades, from easier low level walks to challenging mountain traverses. In the summer months the walks are often longer and there are often opportunities to do several Munros in a day.

If Grampian Club Members have a route they would like to do on the day they can contact the day meet organiser to arrange this (note that the minimum number in a group is preferably 2 in the summertime and 3 in the winter time).

We travel by coach from Dundee, picking up in Perth when heading west. Members are expected to choose walks that are within their own physical capabilities and the Day Meets Team organise attendees into parties of broadly similar ability.

There is a fee for the Day Meets coach (£16) which needs to be paid in advance at the time of booking, preferably via the online booking website, Entry Central, or by cheque.

Routes on the day are likely to include:

Ben Vorlich and Stuc a’ Chroin are the main attraction, whether tackled as a walk through from the shores of Loch Lubnaig or from the north near Loch Earn.
