Dates of existence



The Carn Dearg Mountaineering Club originated due to ex-service men and women's ongoing enthusiasm for outdoor life. It was founded in 1949 in Forfar, because it was easy for members to cycle or bus to Glen Clova. Carn Dearg translated from Gaelic is 'Red Hills' i.e. the Red Craigs of Glen Clova. Its base was later moved to Dundee but members are spread across Scotland and England. Throughout the year the Society runs monthly and weekend trips to Scotland's most spectacular mountain areas. It caters for all forms of mountaineering activity and membership allows users to have access to members-only mountaineering bothies. The club today (2014) has approximately 80 members of all ages and abilities. Carn Dearg Mountaineering Club website
