Skye Activity Week (Thur) - Optional accommodation
18 people attending
27 places left
During these five days in which you can pick and choose your attendance as you like, we are bringing together members of our group in one location were we will do a number of different activities in the day and socialise in the evenings.
The activities will depend on which leaders attend and the weather at the time but we already have walks and climbing / scrambling lined up with more activities to follow as other leaders sign up. I've done similar events which have had several other leaders attend and every day we did things which catered for most people. More information will follow nearer to the time but many of you probably will need to start thinking about your holiday dates for next year hence the early posting.
I'll be staying at the Sligachan Campsite from the Tuesday afternoon which is an ideal base to explore the island and the Cuillins.
