About Nevis Hillwalking Club

Nevis Hillwalking Club is a small, friendly, Lochaber-based club that goes out walking every weekend of the year. Its members are keen hillwalkers, mainly Lochaber residents, who share a passion for the local countryside, the Scottish hills, and mountains everywhere. They come from a variety of backgrounds. Some have been hillwalkers since childhood; some joined the club as novices.

Walks are normally on alternate Saturdays and Sundays. Bad weather is not a deterrent, although the planned walk may be modified, or an alternative proposed, to suit the conditions on the day.

Any member may propose walks for the quarterly programme of walks. Members are free to attempt less or more than the programmed walk, but normally everyone finishes at a convenient pub or tea room to socialise at the end of the day.

In summer, the Club tackles more distant hills with weekend trips to places such as Skye, Rum, Torridon and Knoydart. Social events, such as barbecues, and training events are organised from time to time.

We offer a warm welcome to new members and visitors.

Membership

Anyone is welcome to join the club - you don't have to be proposed or serve a probationary period or the like. However, it is probably a good idea to come along for a few outings as a visitor to find out how you get on. You need to download our membership form which has instructions printed on it.

The Small Print

The Club Yearbook which used to be distributed annually in paper form to all members has now been discontinued and replaced by an online document - The Club Handbook. This contains a foreword, the club code of practice, the country code, the constitution of the club and the rules of the club. Click here to download this document. Please contact the secretary if you wish a paper copy. The handbook is in PDF format (the same as the MWIS weather forcasts, for example). Most browsers will open this automatically using the Adobe Acrobat Reader software (and you can then view or print the programme).

If you don't already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader software (unlikely), you can download this from the Adobe web site -
