Information for New Members

Club Cualann (test) is open for membership and welcomes new members. New members are very welcome to come walking any Sunday! However we schedule a ‘welcome walk’ on the second Sunday of each month. These walks are shorter than regular walks and will give new members an opportunity to try the club out!

Meeting points are normally at the start of the walk. Regular weekends away and walking trip are also organised. We also host a navigation and training weekend on the first weekend in March to develop the navigation skills of new and existing club members.

If you are interested in coming along one Sunday you can either email clubcualannsec@ gmail.com or text/call the walk leader as listed on the walks list. We look forward to meeting you.

Useful Stuff

What do I need to bring?

Essential for all hill walks

  • Suitable walking boots,
  • Comfortable back pack,
  • Waterproof jacket and trousers,
  • Hat and gloves,
  • Extra clothing layers,
  • Enough food and drink for the day (we always have lunch in the hills),
  • A change of clothes in a separate bag for afterwards,
  • Remember that it is usually best to wear multiple layers of clothing rather than 
    a single heavy layer as this allows you to adjust for the conditions.  Remember also that
    denim jeans can be very uncomfortable in wet conditions.
