Informal and friendly - the Braes O' Fife Mountaineering Club has now been welcoming mountain-goers for over 40 years.
The club's main activities centre on our weekend meets. We hold around 12 each year, mostly to club huts (typical accommodation cost £12 per night). We also hold a few day meets.
Although originally a mountaineering club, members undertake a variety of activities. These range from hill walking, rock climbing, mountain biking, skiing/snowboarding, hill running, sea kayaking, sailing, to playing the guitar & mandolin. Everyone's welcome !
Most members leave on Friday evening, spend Saturday and Sunday on the hill, returning on Sunday evening. If you want to attend just book your place and organise transport at the Harbour Bar on the Monday evening (9.30pm) before or contact the Meets Secretary. If you are social media savvy, you can join our Facebook page, and post about meets. Here's the link. Or follow our Twitter page, here.
Throughout the year other distractions include slide presentations, visits to climbing walls, evening rock-climbing sessions and a mountain trivia quiz. The news page has details.
