Founded in October 2002, taysidetrekkers are based on the principle that no one is too old to walk in the hills.
From humble beginnings, we now have a healthy, diverse Membership, which undertakes twice monthly Walk’s all over Scotland and further afield. We also run Navigation Courses, Introduction to Scrambling Courses, Winter Skills’ Day’s and Outdoor First Aid Courses.
We also run either weekends or short breaks away – these have included Torridon, the Isle of Harris, and previous trips have seen the Club travel to Eire to complete MacGillicuddy Reeks and the Irish 3000ft’s, the Lakes to do English 3000ft’s, Snowdonia and Wales, the Skye Cuillin, and unforgettable Knoydart.
In our ranks, we currently have a Winter ML, a WEMT, 3 Summer ML’s, two member’s of Tayside Mountain Rescue Team, including the Deputy Team Leader. There are another 3 members on the ML Scheme.
Our new Walks Programme can be found in another section, and if you feel that you would like to join us for any of the walks, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
As a great philosopher once said when coming off a hill –
‘Stop. Look back, and think to yourself, is this the end or just the beginning?’
