Welcome to Mid-Ulster Walking Club (Est.1989)

Affiliated to Ulster Federation of Rambling Clubs.
Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed. Mid-Ulster Walking Club and Cookstown Council,in the past, organised Sperrintrek walks during the year. The club has a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have been to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran.  In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. Shorter mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, although no shorter, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape. Occasional trips abroad are organised independently from within the Club. We organise our own training sessions.                   2017

  Hi everyone . It's that time of year when we organise our annual spring trip and this year we are off to North Wales, leaving on Friday 28th April and returning Monday 1st May. We are booked to stay at Royal Oak hotel in Betws-Y-Coed on a half board basis. Due to the sea ferry times there will be an early start on Friday morning as the first pick-up will be in Magherafelt at 04.00 with further boarding at Cookstown(04.15) Dungannon(04.35) and Portadown(05.00). Ferry crossing from Dublin is at 08.20 and we should arrive in Betws-Y-Coed by lunchtime which gives us some extra time to explore this amazingly beautiful area. The proposed walks will be tough enough to test us all with the A group taking on the Glyders four peaks including some steep scrambles on the Saturday. The B group will tackle Snowden and this is a fantastic opportunity to climb the highest mountain in Wales. (1085m) There are 44 places available at the hotel and these will firstly be allocated to those Full members who come out on a regular basis to Sunday walks. (Must have attended at least 3 Sunday walks in 2017) In the event that there aren't enough places, we will try to find alternative accommodation though this cannot be guaranteed. The Cost for transport and 3 nights HB accommodation is £310 pp sharing and £325 for a single room. (Only a few single rooms available) Booking can be made by sending £100pp deposit(non-refundable) to Robin Leslie at Robin Leslie 12 Killycomaine Close Portadown BT63 5JP  BY 19th February Regards David Mullin  (MUWC Secretary)
