Crianlarich: Friday 7th - Sunday 9th October 2005
Signup Date : Tuesday 4th October 8pm


  • The meeting place is outside the University Stores which is near the Halifax cash machine and just below the top of the Cut Through Lane.
  • We are going to the Wigwams just outside of Crianlarich which is in the Southern Highlands of Scotland.

I think we should try and keep hyperlinks as the default of blue and underlined otherwise you can't see what is a link and what is not


  • If you need picking up from Lenton you should have ticked the box on the sign up sheet or e:mail Damian .


  • 5pm on Friday 7th October 2005 .


  • The cost of the trip will be £40 (Cheques to “U of NSU (MPS)” or cash) - please bring them with you to the signup . This is the only way to ensure you get on a trip.


  • We will leave from the Wigwams about 4pm on the Sunday and so be back at uni at around midnight.


  • A whole day out means taking loads of food and drink. There is nowhere to buy food so bring lots of sandwiches/bottles of water, etc.
  • Snacks for the journey up are nice.
  • Food for the mountains needs to be easily eaten – sandwiches/meat loaf, chock bars and apples/oranges are easy to eat.

I recommend:

  • Minimum of 4 sandwiches, cakes/chocolate, raisons/nuts, lots of fruit
  • Minimum of 2 litres of drink
    per walk not including a few chocolate bars and nuts for emergency rations.


  • The drive up can be boring and so a book/personal stereo/DVD player might be a good idea.
  • A pillow can make sleeping easier.
  • The kit normally goes on the roof of the bus so make sure it is fully water proofed.

Kit List:

  • If you have any questions about kit ask any of the committee. DO NOT turn up without ESSENTIAL KIT. Please also check out the kit list page.
