The Moray Mountaineering Club was established in 1931 with the declared aim ‘to encourage mountaineering and serve as a bond of union amongst lovers of the Scottish hills’. Membership is centred on the Elgin and Forres areas but enthusiasts from Keith, Fochabers, Inverness and further afield attend meets.
Club activities include monthly ‘bus’ and ‘weekend’ meets, regular rock climbing sessions and social functions.? A nominated committee member manages each activity.? The main interests centre on summer and winter hill walking, mountaineering,?climbing, and ski touring.
A small elected Committee manages the club on behalf of the membership, with decisions being ratified at the Annual General Meeting in March or April each year. There is an annual membership fee, which provides individual third-party liability insurance through Mountaineering Scotland, the quarterly “Scottish Mountaineer” magazine, a monthly club newsletter, occasional training sessions and discounts at some outdoor retailers.
