The Monteseel Mountain Climbing hut has been made available to the Monteseel Community to use as a space for various projects from abseil training, workshops, fetes and fairs, live music, movie, dinner evenings and much more. This unique beautiful space has a lot to offer with magnificent views over the Valley of 1000 Hills, and easy access to the community members.

Held on May 28, the Monteseel Family Day offers a day out for the whole family, with live music, fire dancing, stalls, home-made food stuffs, fun for the children, a nursery, big screen rugby, abseiling excursions, and much more.
