Graham Brown House

GBH (Graham Brown House) is the spiritual home of the EUMC. Originally, Tom Graham Brown - an ex member of the club, neurophysiologist, and prolific alpinist of his time - donated a house to the club, to be looked after by the University. Since then property prices rocketed and the university sold the house and provided the club with a small flat instead.

GBH is also home to our Library and to the Gear Store, from which you can rent all sorts of climbing/mountaineering gear for a small fee.

The Hut

Not many university clubs can boast of a bothy in the North-West Highlands. The Hadden-Woodburn Memorial Hut, also known as Glen-Licht House, and sometimes colloquially within the club as 'The Bothy', is situated at the foot of the Five Sisters of Kintail, based in the heart of an excellent walking area.

Local Indoor Climbing Walls

Here in Edinburgh we are very lucky to have access to several local indoor climbing walls, including the EICA (Edinburgh International Climbing Arena) - the biggest indoor climbing wall in Europe!

The University's Pleasance sports centre (aka the CSE) has climbing and bouldering facilities open to members of the gym, their guests, University students and staff. You'll nearly always find Yummicks there since it's so close to the main university area, and just down the street from GBH.

We are also lucky to have Alien Rock, the oldest indoor climbing wall in Scotland and housed in an old church, and it's partnered bouldering wall A2 a mere cycle/bus ride away in Leith.
