About this meet

Frequently called 'the Welsh Lake District', this area is not often visited by the Gentians, but is one that contains a lot of interesting and varied walking opportunities (see links below).


Local Information

There is easier walking around the five reservoirs in the nearby Elan Valley or possibly part of Glyndwr's Way. For harder stuff there are two, 2000' ft 'Hewitts' to the South and a car journey will take us West up to Pumlumon, the highest point in mid-Wales, for a classic day out with a total of five 'Hewitts'.

And for a change of pace: the bunkhouse is on three National Cycle Network Trails including the N8, N80, The Radnorshire Ring and also the Trans Cambrian Route. Bikes can be stored in the bunkhouse barn.

Rhayader, with many food and drink options is around five minutes away by car and with a red kite feeding centre in the vicinity we are bound to see a few.


Facilities

Accommodation facilities include a drying room but hopefully we can relax in the garden around the firepit and enjoy the lovely views (see accommodation link above).

About this meet

The is the week-long European Meet for 2024. Please note that the accommodation has changed from that originally booked.

The finca is approximately 10 minutes drive from Ronda which itself lies between the natural parks of Sierra de las Nieves to the East and Grazalema to the West. Approximately 20 mountain walks are within easy driving range. The area is typical of Southern Spain with ancient mule tracks and paths linking white washed villages and jagged limestone scenery above stands of Spanish firs.

While it might be possible to reach the finca with a combination of public transport and taxi, car hire would then still be essential to reach the start of walks. Several large rental companies are based at the airport. The driving is then approx 1 hr 45min. Note that the last section up to the finca is on a dirt track which one review describes as ‘rough'.

The price of the meet includes 7 nights in the finca (either a twin or 4-bed room), six breakfasts and five evening meals.

Travel and from UK airport
Travel to and from Malaga airport
Flight

Share of car hire

Role of the Club

Upper Loch Torridon is a stone's throw from Mol Mor, with Liathach towering in the background. Looking west, Beinn Alligin's shapely outline invites many to attempt its first summit, Tom na Gruagaich (922m), one of the five Munros on the Trust's Torridon estate.

The hide near the seashore offers a perfect vantage point to view wildlife. Look out for red deer, grazing Highland cattle, oystercatchers, golden eagles and, if you're very lucky, otters and pine martens.

Although very basic. this hut is beautifully situated in the remote Newlands Valley, yet thirty minutes drive from Keswick in the heart of the NW Lakes the hut is surrounded by summits including Robinson, High Spy and Dale Head.


Facilities

Reached by driving or walking the last mile and a half along an unsurfaced, old miners track, the hut has no electricity (so no fridge, freezer, toaster or electrical kettle), but does have gas cookers and gas lighting.

One of the most attractive features is the coke pot-bellied stove. The cold water supply is straight from the fells above the hut & so needs to be treated (e.g. boiling) before drinking and used for cooking.
Please note, there is only one outside flushing toilet and no showers. Facilities are both basic and appreciated by those wishing to get away from it all.

For those who are interested, it is possible to stay an additional night - Sunday 15th June. The additional cost for this will be £10 per person and will be collected during the meet.
