West Lancs Munro Baggers


Several of our members have been meeting in Scotland over a number of years.  We have used the hostels at Crianlarich and Sheil Bridge with some preferring tents.  Another year we stayed at Willies Hostel at Killilan. We also had a larger group visit to Corran Bunkhouse in late September 2014.

In September 2002 a group stayed at Calluna, Fort William when John Bennett became a Compleater. John then started a regular May trip for the benefit of others.  The normal group comprised of John Bennett and John Evenden, Alec and Margaret Burford, Jeff and Enid Parr, Pauline Edwards and Kate and Mike Motley with a further 20 members joining us on various occasions:

John Titterington, Frank & Barbara Watson, Anne Hearne, George & Janice Moughton, John & Doreen Viney, John & Sue Allonby, Judith Preston, Tony Postle, Stan & Shirley, Jim Potts, Dave & Sheila Turner, Jean Bobker, Reg & Pat Mills, Keith Midgely & Memorable Martin (with the hair!)
