SMHC is a great way to meet new people from in and around Stonehaven who share your enthusiasm for hiking and mountaineering. It’s a good idea to try out the club before you join. Prospective members can attend a day walk or weekend event without first paying for membership. We welcome walkers of all abilities. Please get in touch via our contact form if you would like to come along and join us on a walk to see how you get on. Alternatively you can join online now using the Application Form.

Who joins SMHC?

SMHC consists of hill walkers and mountaineers of all ages, social backgrounds and experience. Our weekends away offer access to challenging high level walks and scrambling. For less experienced walkers, learn new skills such as navigation and gain confidence with help from our experienced members. If you want to progress on to more challenging expeditions, then we have many members who can help you onwards and upwards. Join us on walks and scrambles in Scotland.

Group Walks
A variety of routes, of differing levels of difficulty, are available depending on capability and wishes of the group.

Weekends Away
We organise several weekend meets through-out the year, we usually advise booking in advance due to high demand.
