Here is the wiki for planning transport to Scotland for the Easter Glencoe trip from Sun 17th to Fri 22nd March. Please fill in, particularly if you're planning to drive.

Important details about the bunkhouse

We're going to the SMC's Lagangarbh hut. There is a fairly regular bus (no. 915) from Glasgow to Glencoe (and on to Fort William) for those interested in going by public transport. It's about a three mile walk from the nearest official bus stop (at the Glencoe Mountain Resort) but bus drivers may be persuaded to stop in the layby at Altnafeadh just by the bunkhouse.

Car 1 - Toby Roney

  • No. of Passengers: I can take 2 people.
  • Route: Would like to leave from Shelford Train Station, so if you would like a lift it would be useful if you could get there. Train from Cambridge to Shelford costs a couple of pounds.
  • Dates: . I'll be leaving 17th early morning. It doesn't look like I'll be heading back, as I will be driving elsewhere. If you want to message me with questions please Facebook me - Toby Roney. I'll be driving up in a Defender so there will be plenty of space for kit. :)
