It seems I have misled you or more the case my missus has misled me - so going by her new instructions - which as we all know my missus being a lady might well change and probably will - but it looks like 19/20 may no longer be available to me as we may well be away during mid September -may not your guess is as good as mine - but as that may well (probably will) change again then I can only say if I happen to be around when you decide to go then i will come along but i may well be somewhere else. Now then that's as definite as I can currently be.

'Friad the 12th and 19th Sept are both out for me but think the other later dates could work.

hey, been away a bit...

so, a few of us in the pub tonight come up with the weekend of the 19th Sep. We're thinking somewhere around 2-3 hours max, north of Edinburgh. A campsite with a bar attached or very near.

shout if you're in. I'll have a think about a location, but I'm initially thinking of Glen Clova. Which has camping, bunkhouse and a bar..

cheers,
Doug

PS. I think some were talking about October as well ?

we have a plan..

"Another option could be Oban for the first night and wild camp somewhere, ferry to Mull (0730, 0930, 1145, 1400, takes 45 mins), pootle on Mull, ferry to Ardnamurchan (last ones 1600 & 1800, 35 mins, none on Sunday), where there is this place which apparently has a hotel & bar within a mile Study Centre for 2nd night, then back on Sunday? Anyone who only wants to do a night, or needs to be back earlier on Sunday, could join us on Mull then head back to Oban from there?"

cheers,
Doug

Plans

So, who's coming along?

And if we suggest meeting 4.30 for a 5pm departure, is that going to work for everyone? We could add in a stop at Stirling services to pick up anyone that's useful for, and go for the Tyndrum chippy.

There's a wild camping spot next to the hotel at Bridge of Orchy (though the only time I've been there it was quite soggy - anyone been recently to know what it's like after this summer of rain?).

Also enquiring about wild camping options nearer Oban - what would people prefer, and does anyone have any suggestions nearer there?

Campsites!?!

Hi there,

Further to conversations with Laura and Dougie late this afternoon here is a suggestion of a camping site in the area... It says they also have cabins for people who want more luxury! I have not used this site but have a look at there website and let us know what you think!?! Dougie... is this the one you where thinking of?

Menu

Dougie and I where thinking that camping in one place for 2 nights would be a good plan giving us showers and freedom to do whatever you want on the Saturday without worrying about getting to/finding the next camping place and catching up with everyone again!

Let us know your thoughts... not long to go now!
