Lothian Teachers Mountaineering Club

Welcome to the LTMC

Our Meet Programme

We run monthly weekend meets and fortnightly midweek walks, as well as the occasional social event. Our weekend meets visit most of the main mountaineering and hillwalking areas of Scotland, with occasional trips to the Lake District and the Pennines. Some weekend trips take advantage of long weekends to venture further afield, for example Skye or Torridon or even Durness. Accommodation is always reasonably priced eg mountain huts or hostels, and car sharing is encouraged. We usually have a communal meal on the Saturday evening and have a lot of fun even if the weather isn't as good as we might have hoped. Most meets consist of 10-15 members so there's always a friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome. We have an annual Dinner Meet where we enjoy hotel accommodation and catering.

Midweek walks explore areas closer to home and offer a variety of day out, the Pentlands, the Ochils or the Border Hills; on other outings we do low level coastal walks or rural walks, usually finishing up at a nice coffee shop!

Lothian Teachers’ Mountaineering Club (LTMC) was established in 1976 by a group of teachers and outdoor education staff in Lothian. The club is open to people from all walks of life and welcomes any interested hill-walker or mountaineer. The LTMC has always maintained an enthusiastic core and presently has a membership of about 40 based mainly in Edinburgh, the Lothians and Fife. The club’s aim is to encourage members to improve their skills while enjoying the hills safely and to expand their horizons.
