Cardigan Mountain Winter Sports and Scottish Dance Weekend

Our 45th annual Cardigan Scottish Weekend at AMC Cardigan Lodge in 2020 ran from Jan 31 to Feb 2, 2020, with winter hiking, Scottish Country dancing, puzzles, games, music, and great food and community. Unfortnately, given the pandemic, we will not be able to host our traditional Cardigan weekend in early 2021, though the AMC tells me that some individual rooms in the lodge will be available for winter weekends through their website. The 2022 weekend will run Feb. 4-6. Further details and applications will be posted here closer to the date. Meanwhile, the application form from 2020 is here, just to give you a sense.

The pictures here (courtesy of Ken Launie) are from a weekend a number of years back, where a foot of new snow fell just as the weekend was getting underway.

If you have questions about these weekends, you can send email to "lance.ramshaw" at the host "gmail.com".
