About the Lecture Series

Now in the 34th year, the Clachaig Winter Mountain Safety Lecture series is the longest running safety initiative of its kind. Designed to be a last port of call before setting off into the winter hills, each lecture will look at key safety considerations which may well be a timely reminder when planning your outing for the next day. Read more about the lecture series…

Rab - The Mountain PeopleClachaig’s lectures are informal by design, and will hopefully be as entertaining as they are educational. For 2016 lectures will be presented in the Boots Bar. There is no charge for entry. Start will be 8pm approx. If part of a larger group, please give us some advance notice so that we can do our best to prepare accordingly. To help us to continue to improve and develop the series, we’d be very grateful for your feedback after the lecture.

We are particularly keen to ensure that the lecture series remains FREE ENTRY as it has done since its inception. However, there are costs and we are extremely grateful for the backing and financial support of Rab. Their belief in the value of the lectures has ensured that the series can continue to be delivered for the 2019 season.


Whilst the lectures are free, we will be asking you to part with a pound, or three, as we raise funds for Glencoe Mountain Rescue throughout the course of FebruaryFest.

There are some great prizes from Rab and a range of other local and connected businesses. Read more about The Big Winter Raffle. 

Raffle tickets will be on sale on the night, and throughout February at Clachaig.
