We close the season with the celebrated Members ‘Slides’ evening. The poor Scottish summer of 2019 may not have seen too much activity on our own hills but I know that many of you have had trips to interesting places in Europe and further afield.
The venue is the Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2JL..
