Holidays & Trips Away

Different places to walk are a nice thing about trips away!
It was a tad on the snowy side in Bala (fortunately the lake was at the bottom of the hill, unfortunately the stream wasn’t)

We try to have weekends and longer trips away, about two or three times a year. These trips are volunteer organised and lead. In the past we’ve been to Somerset, Dorset and Snowdonia on weekend trips; the Lake District, Perthshire and Spain on longer trips.

Each trip away is different, depending upon the organiser, but all have a mix of days walks and evening socialising, whether down the local establishment, or sitting around a large (and usually full) dinning table. If we have any trips coming up, below is the place to find them! – if there isn’t any there, have you ever thought of organising one?

Trips away coming up!

National Young Ramblers Weekend 2019 @ Cambridge
Jun 28 – Jun 30 all-day

Stag Walkers is hosting National Young Ramblers Weekend 2019, an event where young ramblers from all over the country get together.   This year, the event will be based in Cambridge from 28th-30th June.  They are busy putting together the details of what we’re sure will be a fantastic weekend of walking and socialising.  This page will be updated once we have more information about the weekend

Hill walking in the heart of Scotland @ Pitlochry YHA
Jul 13 – Jul 20 all-day

Are you a keen hill walker? Do you fancy climbing your first Munro? Or perhaps you would prefer some low-level walking taking in the lovely Scottish scenery. If so, this trip is for you! Come and join me for a week based in Pitlochry with the opportunity to walk up (or round) some lovely Scottish mountains. From this fairly central location, a number of areas are available for walking providing we have a few cars between us; we can head over to the Ben Lawyers range, climb Schiehallion, take in the views from the West and East Mounth or head up to Braemar for some walks in the Cairngorms. Pitlochry also provides the perfect opportunity to sample some whisky with three local distilleries – Blair Atholl for single malt, Dewar if you prefer a blend and Eradour, one of the smallest distilleries in Scotland, run from a local farm.

UPDATE: The deadline for reserving a space at Pitlochry Youth Hostel has now passed, and 2 dorms have been booked.  There is ONE female space left, and the cost for this is £133 for the week.  If you are interested in taking this place, please contact me.  As is common on BW holidays we will aim to eat together most nights in the youth hostel to keep the costs down, and I will organise this closer to the time. If you have any questions or want to know more about the trip, please don’t hesitate to contact to me.
