MCofS Gift of Membership

Looking for a present for someone special?  Why not buy that special person the MCofS Gift of Membership?

The MCofS Gift of Membership makes a great gift for the hill walker, climber or mountaineer in your life. Whether it be Christmas, a Birthday, Valentine’s Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day or an Anniversary; a year’s membership of the MCofS is a fitting present for that ‘special person’.

Gift of Membership

Once your ’special person’ is a member of the MCofS they will soon appreciate the value of their MCofS membership card. The MCofS operates a Members’ Discount Scheme, so by flashing their card on a regular basis they will easily save the cost of the annual subscription by claiming discounts with retailers, accommodation providers and a wide range of other discount scheme members.

As well as Individual Gift Membership of the MCofS you can purchase a Joint Membership for two people living at the same address, or Family Membership for those with one or more children in the household. All MCofS members are covered by our third party Civil Liability Insurance, so Joint and Family Memberships are a great way of providing all household members with this protection.

To make your Gift of Membership even more special, choose a free gift for the recipient; so as well as receiving their membership card and four editions of Scottish Mountaineer over the coming year, they will also receive a gift of your choosing. Please choose from the list of gifts below.

Depending on the particular interest of the person you are buying for you can choose one item from the following list of valuable free gifts.
