This year's New Year trip is going to Braemar, in the Cairngorms.
Braemar sits right in the heart of the mountains, and walking options range from short days in the relatively accessible hills around the Devil's Elbow pass to long hard walks out to remote peaks in the subarctic wilderness of the Cairngorm plateau. Depending on conditions, there might also be opportunities for skiing at Glenshee, winter climbing at Lochnagar and beyond, or even a round of golf at Scoland's highest 18-hole course!
The New Year trip is also a great social occasion - in the past, we've filled in the long evenings with everything from impromptu ceilidhs to big dinners, dubiously legal fireworks to demonstrably unsafe party games. I think this is going to be my tenth New Year trip, and all of them so far have been memorable experiences.
We've got Braemar Youth Hostel booked for exclusive use from the 27th of December to the 2nd of January.
