The membership fee varies from year to year as the club’s costs vary, the 2014-2015 fee being £40. If you are wondering where your membership fee goes, about half of it helps fund the club so that we can secure bookings for the year’s events (we have to book minibus rental and mountain huts well in advance) and keep our supply of equipment in good order. The other half goes to the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, to provide you with civil liability insurance, access to a whole range of free safety and skills lectures, access to subsidised training events and a subscription to Scottish Mountaineer magazine.

Before you join you’ll need to fill out a DURC Membership Form, which you you can access and print of your own copy from here. Bring it with you to the pub on Tuesdays, it will then just need to be signed and witnessed.
