Meetings will now be held on a Monday so we don’t clash with the youth club in the Seòmar Chruinneachaidh.The start time is usually 7.30pm, unless otherwise stated in the programme. Our usual venue is the Conference Room/Seomar Cruinneachaidh at Sabhal Mor Ostaig shown as SMO in the programme below. From time to time we use other venues – if so these will be specified on the programme. Monthly meetings are free to members, while the entry for non-members is usually £3.
