Glenrothes Hillwalkers Club


We are a friendly club composed of like-minded hill walking enthusiasts of all ages and abilities, and work hard to maintain a sociable and supportive environment within the club. We operate a comprehensive programme of indoor meetings, monthly walks at different ability levels with organised transport, weekends away staying at huts and hostels all over Scotland, and training in key skills to ensure your safety on the hills. Members also benefit from the opportunity to learn skills from more experienced members. If you are considering an outdoor challenge, such as the Three Peaks Challenge, climbing the Matterhorn, climbing Kilimanjaro, or just tackling Ben Nevis, we have members who can give you practical advice on equipment, planning and training. There are other benefits from membership, such as discounts at leading outdoor stores, membership of the Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS), and public liability insurance.  You will find more details on the Membership Benefits page. We welcome new members, so if you want to enjoy the hills whilst getting fit and having fun, please come and join us. You do not need to join the Club before your first walk, as we operate a “Try before you buy” policy - your first walk is free, other than the cost of the transport, so you can come along and see if you like us without commitment. The Club publishes a monthly newsletter which summarises recent events, takes a look at forthcoming events, and gives the latest news about the Club. You can read the latest edition here. If you would like to find out more about the Club and its activities, please read the Information Pack. If you would like to see more photos, you can view a slideshow from our Flickr group below.

After the next meeting we will be raffling Christmas hampers and other items generously donated by the members.  You can buy as many tickets as you like, and all proceeds will go to a Mountain Rescue Team, so bring plenty of cash!
