The Alpine Club, the world’s first mountaineering club, was founded in 1857.  For over 150 years, members have been at the leading edge of worldwide mountaineering development and exploration. 

With membership, experienced and aspiring alpinists benefit from a varied meets programme, regional lectures with notable guest speakers, reduced rates at many alpine huts, opportunity to apply for grants to support expeditions, significant discounts at many UK retailers, extensive networking contacts, access to the AC Library and maps - and more!

The Alex Mac hut is booked for the weekend of 13th/14th of January for the January Young Alpinist/Alpine Climbing Group winter meet.

The Alex Mac Hut is in North Ballachulish, so is ideally situated for Glen Coe and the Ben.

It is £12 per person per night; places will be on a first come first serve basis and to confirm your place I'll ask for a £12 deposit.

The idea of the weekend is to get out and go climbing!
