Weekend Training Meets – Scotland

Rated 4.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

Weekend Training weekends are strictly for clients and prospective clients plus their guests only.

Our pre-expedition training weekends are designed to help you prepare fully for your expedition, allowing members to meet in order to obtain information, share ideas, train, socialise and most of all gel as teams.  Whilst the meets are optional we strongly recommend you attend at least one, but you are welcome to attend as many as you like and you can bring a partner or friend. Meets are held in a variety of different areas across the Lake District and also in Scotland in winter.

Please book at least one month in advance for the Scottish meets to enable us to secure the accommodation as places are limited and tend to go quickly. Full payment is required at the time of booking . We would aim to be back at the hotel by 4 pm on Sunday to take account of your onward journey.

Description

Partners, friends & past expedition members:

We are happy for you to bring a friend to the weekend meets but please ensure they are adequately equipped and are sufficiently experienced to participate safely. Past expedition members can continue to attend the weekend meets also. Please note accommodation is not included in the cost of the weekends.

Getting To Scotland

There are often good flight deals to Glasgow Airport with BA, Flybe, Ryanair or Easyjet. See www.skyscanner.net. Once in Glasgow, whether you have arrived by plane or train, you can then connect by bus with City Link to drop off at the hotel; buses leave from Glasgow Airport and Glasgow Buchanan bus station (approx 2hrs 30min transfer). See www.citylink.co.uk for times and prices. It is possible to get a train to Fort William and back from both Glasgow airport and Glasgow Central station, followed by a bus or taxi for the 9-14 miles to the hotel, but the bus can often be a cheaper option.

Alternatively you could hire a car – the airports offer choices such as www.rhinocarhire.com, Hertz www.hertz.co.uk, Avis www.avis.co.uk, Budget www.budget.co.uk and Enterprise www.enterprise.com

Equipment

The Scottish meets give you a chance to do some winter walking in the mountains. You will require an ice axe, crampons, goggles and usual winter gear/clothing. All of these can be hired from Adventure Peaks for a small charge. More experienced clients who feel they may want to pair up and do some climbing over the weekend if the opportunity arises, would need to bring appropriate equipment and could also hire a harness and helmet from Adventure Peaks if arranged in advance.

Equipment must be booked prior to the weekend. A more detailed equipment list can be provided on request.
