Dates of existence


The Rucksack Club was first set up in 1923 and the official title of the club was 'The Rucksack Club of University College Dundee'. The aim of the club was to 'further the interests of the members in all matters appertaining to mountaineering, hill climbing, camping, tramping and similar open air past times.' The official name of the club is now Dundee University Rucksack Club as the club evolved alongside the creation of the University of Dundee. A memorial fund was set up for Graham Leaver, who was a member of the club who died in a climbing accident in 1989. The result of the memorial fund was the renovation of the Glas-Allt-Shiel bothy, which is used by the Rucksack Club.
