About Our Club
Welcome to Carn Dearg Mountaineering Club, celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2024. Established in the rugged landscapes of the Angus Glens, our club has made its mark in the mountaineering community by promoting a culture of respect for nature...and for the people who want to enjoy it.  Our members, a mix of novice walkers, climbers and seasoned mountaineers, come together to explore stunning terrains and create unforgettable memories. We offer a variety of monthly expeditions so, regardless of your level of experience, we welcome you to our community.  Forge new friendships, share our passion, and enjoy the mountains with Carn Dearg

Hill Walking

Hill walking is one of the most popular activities at Carn Dearg Mountaineering Club. There is always a mix of walks for all abilities, from gentle strolls in the countryside to challenging hikes in the mountains.


Love the thrill of climbing or scrambling? So do we at Carn Dearg Mountaineering Club. We are looking to expand our membership with climbers of different levels of knowledge, skill and experience. We want to build our membership that is happy to share their enthusiasm and help support novice members from their first outdoor scramble to climbing and mastering advanced techniques.

Mountain Biking

Scotland offers a fantastic range of trails, tracks and beautiful landscapes just waiting for you. The country has very many tracks and paths totally adapted to mountain biking, many of which are world-class. If you want to mountain bike to your furthest hill, or get out on two-wheels just for the sake of it, then join Carn Dearg.
