The Nevis Hillwalking Club is a small, friendly Lochaber-based club that organises a hill walk on every weekend of the year. It is not a climbing club. Technical equipment is used only when necessary for part of the walk, for example ice axe and crampons on winter routes, or a rope if useful for scrambling. Walks are a full day out on a Saturday or Sunday and members usually enjoy the adventure and challenge of reaching one or more summits.
A warm welcome is offered to new members and guests. We particularly want to increase our core membership of local people, to ensure a continuing solid base of regular walkers and a sound future for the Club. Guests are welcomed on two walks before joining.
Membership includes affiliation to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland and the fee, currently £20 p.a., includes civil liability insurance. Persons under 18 years of age may join in activities if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. They may join the Club free of charge but must pay the affiliation fee, currently £8.45 and, for those under 13, £3.45.
Members are entitled to discounts at certain Lochaber outdoor shops.
