Contact the organiser to book on to this meet.

Coruisk Memorial Hut is situated on the Island of Skye at the head of Loch Scavaig, close to where the River Scavaig flows the few hundred metres from Loch Coruisk to the Sea. It is about 100m from a new landing stage in Loch na Cuilce (off Loch Scavaig) (OS Sheet 32, Grid Ref: NG 487197). The building is self contained and sleeps 9 persons in bunks within the main room. Sleeping bags are required although there are a number of blankets. Power is supplied by bottled gas that serves the cookers, lights and new stove. Both the flush toilet and the kitchen sink are served by a water pipe running from a nearby burn. All pots, pans, crockery, cutlery, etc. are also provided. (Only sleeping bags, clothing and food are required.)

In spite of its remoteness the hut is ideally situated for excursions to Sgurr na Stri (recommended), Druim nan Ramh, The Dubhs, Gars-bheinn and the more demanding traverse of the Cuillin Ridge. Rock climbing of all grades is found nearby. On less energetic days one might include low level walks around Loch na Cuilce, where there are many seals and other forms of wildlife, or around Loch Coruisk, where the scenery is most dramatic with the black rocks plunging into the watery depths.

There are two ways to travel to the hut: on foot from Kilmarie, a 2-4 hour walk fording two rivers or by ferry from Elgol [I know which one I'd choose!].

Bella Jane boat has been booked to leave for Coruisk 17:00 Wednesday 7th September returning 09:30 Sunday 11th September 2022.

N.B. The ferry can be cancelled if weather conditions dictate.

To secure your place on this uniquely, adventurous trip, in the first instance CONTACT the organiser to check that there's space before organising a bank transfer of £92 to the MMC account to pay hut fees [4 nights] and return ferry [booked as a group].
N.B. When the meet is full, there may be a limited possibility for bookers on to camp. Again, please check with the organiser.

N.B. Away meets have been paid for in advance, therefore, when booking on, there is the requirement to pay hut fees upfront as a deposit. Should you book off at a later date, unless another MMC member takes your place, you will lose your deposit.
