Inver Croft House information notes for Cioch members
As a result of a request at 2019 AGM, this old favourite Cioch meet venue is back for 2020.
This former shepherds cottage near Achnasheen, is ideally situated for hill walkers targeting the western highlands. It has close proximity to many desirable Munros in Torridon, south Fannich and Glen Carron. Within a short drive from Inver Croft, you could knock off 17 Munros from your ‘to do’ list and a few Corbetts too. That makes a big dent in sections 12 and 13 of the Munro list. Midges can be a problem, midge repellent is recommended.
This meet requires attendees to take their own sleeping bags. This cottage is around 400 metres from nearest vehicle parking. Pedestrian access to cottage is by footbridge, footpath and board walk. The nearest pub/restaurant (Ledgowan Hotel) is approximately 1 kilometre away and does evening meals and has public bar.
Although the accommodation standard here is quite basic i.e. no showers; the kitchen is adequate for meal preparation for all attendees. Gas cooking, electricity from solar panels plus back up generator. Heating is provided by open fire (wood/coal must be carried in by attendees). Pumped (electric purified) water is supplied to kitchen sinks. Attendees should bring own tea towels. There are 2 internal toilets. There is a drying room. BBQs allowed but no external fires or camping.
If demand exceeds 12 we might get additional places but there’s no guarantee of this.
