The primary object of the Trust, as stated in the Deed, is “to promote and secure the health, education and recreation of members of the public by fostering among them knowledge of the geography, topography, meteorology, biology and geology of and proper technique of movement within mountainous regions of Scotland or elsewhere and an appreciation of their beauty and by affording opportunities for enjoyment of these regions”

Presenting Sponsors

Dundee Mountain ClubDMC logo is Dundee’s most active and diverse mountain sports club for mountaineering, hillwalking, climbing, ski touring, mountain biking and more! The club holds a monthly weekend meet, typically staying at remote mountain huts in stunning locations.  We also have frequent day trips and occasionally venture abroad!

There is a weekly pub night (Thursdays @ 8:30pm, Bank Bar, Union Street) where we concoct plans (usually involving mountains!) over a good pint of ale! We also have a lively online forum for arranging our trips and we hold regular social events throughout the year – dinners, ceilidhs, BBQs and more!  The Dundee Mountain Club is sponsoring the film Reel Rock 12: Break on Through

The Grampian Clubgrampian club logo is one of the area’s oldest and largest mountaineering clubs with a membership of over 220. The Club holds monthly Day Meets (except July/August) and 4 Weekend Meets throughout the year.

Monthly Indoor Meets with a wide variety of public speakers are also popular. The Club owns a hut in Glen Etive and a cottage in Torridon for use by Club members. The Grampian Club is sponsoring the film, Sherpas Speak

The Blairgowrie and District Hillwalking Club consists of about fifty members. Most live within 15 miles of Blairgowrie although some come from as far as Fife and Edinburgh.

Our programme includes Sunday walks every three weeks as well as two weekends away each year with about 20-30 people regularly attending.

The membership covers a wide range of ages and abilities (and there is no correlation between the two!) and the variety of meet destinations and activities reflects this. Our meets (listed here*) cover everything from low level glen walks to scrambling on the Munro ridges and snow gully climbing in winter.
