Glencoe Activity Week 2022 - Camping
5 people attending
14 places left
This is a five night (Tuesday to Sunday) camping event. (If you wish to participate in the daytime activities only or make your own accommodation arrangements please book here instead.)
This is an amazing location surrounded by some of the most famous mountains in Scotland and great for walking, climbing, & mountain biking. We also have several lochs and lochans within walking distance from the campsite. Within a short drive we also have ice climbing, Ben Nevis, Glencoe Mountain and other types of activity.
The following activities are planned and booking links will be added to this page once the details are confirmed:
Ice Climbing at Ice Factor - The National Ice Climbing Centre
There will be a variety of mountain walks and a leisure cycle. As always, the details will be dependent on weather conditions and the availability of volunteer leaders so there will be some flexibility in the programme. Details and timings of each day's activities will be communicated the evening before using the OutdoorLads messaging system.
There will be a welcome event at Signal Rock Cottages on Tuesday evening. We will also get together each evening for a drink and a chat at the campsite, the pub or Signal Rock Cottages. There will be a group meal at the Clachaigh Inn on Saturday night, followed by drinks around the campfire at Signal Rock Cottages

What to bring
Recommended Kit List
In addition to what you need for the daytime activities, some reminders for what you'll need for camping:
Tent: make sure you know how to pitch it, even in bad weather or in the dark. Check you have all the poles, ropes and pegs. A 3 season tent is the minimum recommended level of protection.
Sleeping bag: one that provides adequate warmth, designed to go below the temperature that you expect
Sleeping mat: will keep you warmer and dryer
Waterproof bags: for spare, dry clothing
Food: search online for camping food that’s easy to cook and filling
Hot drinks: at least in cold weather
Cooking Equipment: check you have fuel and know how yours works
Eating equipment: mug, bowl or plate and cutlery
Washing up equipment: detergent, brush/scourer and tea towel
Wash kit: remember to include a towel, shower gel and shampoo
Torch: or easier still, a head torch
Food & drink
No food or drink is included - you'll need to supply all your own for the duration.
There is a pub down the road which serves food and Glencoe Village is only a 5 min drive away. A little further there are other possible places to eat or purchase food from.
There will be a group meal at the Clachaigh Inn on Saturday night, followed by drinks around the campfire at Signal Rock Cottages - obviously, at your own additional cost.
