Wednesday, 17 July 2019 Austria TBC
10 Nights
Austria trip 17th July to 26th July 2019

In a modified form requiring less exertion this is definitely happening
– but at present just with James Stern and Ralph Whittaker – we’d be
happy to be joined if anyone else would like to come. The trip includes
seven nights in mountain huts, walking hut to hut. The area is now
Lasorling (Google ‘Lasorling Weg’ and click on ‘images’) in southern
Austria. The maximum essential daily ascent is now reduced to 640m.
There are a couple of potential rest or take-it-easy days on the route,
staying at two huts two nights in succession. On one of these days
there is an option to ascend the Lasorling Peak at 3098m – not
essential. Much of the route is described (but in reverse direction) in
the description at -

Saturday, 23 May 2020 Iona and Mull TBC
8 Nights
Iona 23/5/20 - 31/5/20

The Iona plan has been moved to the last week of May 2020. At present
the booking sheet for the very popular Iona hostel is wide open for May
2020, but I doubt if it will stay that way for many more months. Dates
are Saturday 23rd to Sunday 31st (exact start/finish dates
approximate). The plan will be to stay in one of several hostels on
Mull for the first half of the week, and then spend three nights on Iona
to finish. Email or see recent entry on Onestep facebook page for more
details

If people who would like to come can notify by end of April 2019, then
hopefully we can make individual bookings for the Iona hostel shortly
afterwards. Hostels on Mull seem to be more laid back – depending on
numbers we could then sort out suitable accommodation on Mull after
booking the Iona hostel.
