No problem. We organise car-share from Edinburgh city centreOur Edinburgh Hillwalking Group is very popular. We're incredibly lucky to have an experienced and dedicated team of volunteers to lead our hillwalks. They love hillwalking and it shows! Thanks to our Dream Team: Robin, Ian F, Bill, Jim and Ian M. Walk Leader: Bill Walk descriptionThis month we are walking up Ben Arthur which will take around 5 hours. A moderate-difficult walk. This walk includes prolonged steep sections. What will I need?good walking bootswalking socks are great if you have thema base layer and mid-layer/fleece waterproof jacketideally water resistant/waterproof walking trousers, though other light weight, quick-drying trousers are fine toohat/gloves/scarf - it can get very cold, even in Summersuncream and sunglasses - well you never know!rucksack (for packed lunch and layers)clean shoes and a carrier bag (for pre- and post-walk)waterpacked lunch (for all walks, except Thursday evenings)Car-ShareWe organise car-share from Edinburgh city centre. It's an informal arrangement that has worked brilliantly. Everyone meets at The Dome and gets into a car - quite simple! We can't guarantee a lift as it depends on sufficient drivers. So far it's worked every time. If you are not driving, please give a petrol contribution to your driver, even if you know them. We do rely on people driving and don't want them to be out-of-pocket. If in doubt, err on the side of genorosity. It would be very difficult logistically, very time-consuming and expensive to make the same journeys by public transport.Remember to bring clean shoes and a carrier bag (for muddy boots) for the journeys to and from the walk. Cost per carThe journey to the start of the walk from George St is approx 184 miles. At 22p per mile that is a total of £40 per car. Your contribution is: £20 if 2 people in car, £13 if 3 people and £10 if 4 people. Please bring the right change if you can.Walk meeting point9am outside The Dome on George Street for car shareor11am in Ben Arthur car park DirectionsGoogle Maps directions from George St to Ben ArthurFind out all our 2012 walks on on the Sunday Brunch Club website here
