Nevis Hillwalking Club has resumed its walks programme and is ready to give a warm welcome to locals and visitors.

Based in Lochaber, the well-established outfit take pride in being based in ‘one of the best hill walking areas on the planet’ and have missed their weekly jaunts which were cancelled during the pandemic.

Jane Ollerenshaw, club chairman, told the Lochaber Times: ‘The past 12 months have been difficult, but this period of enforced inactivity has for many people awakened a renewed appreciation for the landscape in which we live and a strong urge to renew old acquaintances and forge new friendships.

‘The physical and emotional well-being benefits of hill walking are well documented and we look forward to reconnecting with our existing members and welcoming new members.’

In normal times, club members are out every weekend on classic hill-walks including the Ring of Steall or the Five Sisters of Kintail. Less well-known, but equally interesting and adventurous outings, are also included.

Throughout the year, the club organises occasional week and weekend meets to Skye, Torridon or the Cairngorms which include self-catering accommodation or wild camping.
