Skye Meet - Joint meet with Craven Pothole Club 2015
From Saturday 09 May 2015 -  08:00am
To Sunday 17 May 2015 - 05:00pm
Saturday 09 May 2015

After an enjoyable meet in 2013 we will return to be one of the first parties to use the refurbished Glen Brittle Memorial Hut. Although Skye does have some caves, there are no plans for caving at present, but there will be a strong cavers influence on the arrangements. Cost £70 (increased because the hut is now smarter). Hut details can be seen .
