Baggers Rambles – Moffat – February 2024


Trip summary

Based at the Moffat Independent Hostel, where RHSoc visited in October 2022. Many Marilyns and other hills nearby either side of the M74 motorway from where there is hopefully easy access if the weather is poor.

We aim to have a couple of social ‘Baggers Rambles’ each year where members can meet at a hostel for a weekend or a few days.


Two nights from Friday 16 February 2024.

Some people are already planning to stay extra nights either before and / or afterwards.
