One of my first, and favourite munros. A good path up and fantastic views. This is a moderate climb suitable for everyone. There are a few steep parts but it’s mostly gradually ascent. The picture above is from the last time SBC climbed Ben Lomond in April 2009. It was a beautiful sunny day, lets hope we get the same again this time.

Practicalities
We’ll be walking over lunch time so bring a packed lunch and water with you. You’ll need good walking boots, waterproof clothing and layers as weather can be changeable. Remember your sun protection too, you never know!

Car share
We will be meeting outside The Dome (bar) in George Street on Sunday morning to arrange car sharing. If you have a car please bring it as you can always leave it at George Street if there are too many cars. Parking in town is free on a Sunday. Remember to give a contribution towards petrol to your driver. Insist if necessary! If you prefer, you can meet us in Loch Lomond car park at 11am.

THANK GOODNESS IT’S THURSDAY DRINKS AT SKYBAR

Booking: Just turn up
If it’s your first time look out for Stephanie or give her a call on 07881 900 251 when you arrive.
Members and Non-Members
Free with complimentary drink included

We absolutely LOVED SKYbar last month so we’re heading back again. We’re starting the weekend a day early and moving our Friday drinks to Thursday to go to the SkyBar. It opens on the last Thursday of each month and has fantastic castle views.

Great way to meet lots of new people and have a few laughs.

There’s a complimentary drink for everyone who arrives before 8pm (a cocktail, glass of wine, bottle of beer or soft drink). Jason’s legendary Singapore slings were a big hit last month.

Remember there’s a barbecue on too so you don’t need to dash home for dinner first.

A friend in London told me about this show she saw there and can’t wait to see again in Edinburgh. It’s incredible in the true sense of the word.
“Urban, flamboyant circus of awe-inspiring acrobatics and dance. A tapestry of their personal stories where exuberant young Colombian artists charge the circus with their perfectly mastered yet volcanic energy. Co-production Roundhouse London.”

The dinner at Crescent on 6 August sold out within hours so we’re offering it again.

After the super evenings we had at Charlie & Evelyn’s Table, Kitchen Porters and My Home Supper Club, we’re delighted to be dining with Crescent Secret Supper Club.

These fabulous secret dining clubs in the homes of enthusiastic foodies are always a thrill.

It looks lovely and has already received rave reviews. Get in quickly though as it seems that Crescent might only be around for August. Find out more on the website.
