Dunfermline Rambling Club

CURRENT DRC PROGRAMME -- Summer 2019




Issued 16 May 2019. For a printable version of the programme, click Summer 2019 Programme

Participants on the outings are asked to ensure that they are properly equipped to tackle the walks, many of which are off-the-track in wild, boggy or mountainous country. Please provide yourself with adequate walking boots, compass, map and wet-weather clothing (to include waterproof-jacket, overtrousers, and change of clothes).

Please Note:-

1. Walkers are expected to heed advice/instructions given by leaders and other experienced club members as to their suitability for attempting particular walks (or sections of walks).

2. None of us are qualified mountain leaders so walkers take part at their own risk.

3. Please note that persons accepting lifts in other members' cars are expected to contribute towards the travelling costs at the following rates:-
........Round trips of under 20 miles...........2.00 each
........Round trips of 20-50 miles...........5.00 each
........Round trips of 50-80 miles........7.00 each.
........Round trips exceeding 80 miles........10.00 each.
