Cioch Hillwalking Club - Meetup No. 1
The Tarmachan Ridge
Saturday 24th March 2018
Our first meetup is going to be a southern highland classic that includes a lovely, albeit short, ridge on the west side of the Lawers range. Starting high at the Ben Lawers Car Park we will simply follow the path up to Meal nan Tarmachan, the only munro of the day, before being able to enjoy the airy walk along the ridge to Meall Garbh and then finally to Beinn nan Eachan. We will them drop down at the beallach to an old quarry to catch the land rover track back to the car park.
There has been a lot of snow this winter, especially recently, and it must be expected that there will be considerable collections on high ground in the at the end of March. Please be prepared for this and bring the appropriate equipment. You are responsible for your own safety.
For car shares please meet at the car park at the top end of the Glen – across from The Glen Tavern.
