Ride out into the Scottish Highlands

Hello everyone,
Before we leave on our big trip, Geourge and I are organising a day trip out into the Highlands, starting from my home in Aberdeenshire.
The plan is to set off Sat 31st July at around 10am and head over the lecht to loch Garten. We will be at loch Garten for lunch where we will have a bbq and a cuppa, I have a friend who is willing to drive one over and cook us some burgers etc. then take a scenic route home (have not decided yet).
Hopefully a few of you will want to camp as we should have a good few lemonades that night! You are all most welcome to camp on my farm both Friday night and Saturday night, unfortunately I cannot offer shower or toilet (parents house!) ill lend you a spade though.
This should turn out to be a great day out, so far there are about 11 people confirmed.

The bbq and camping will be free, all I ask is that each rider to attend donates £20 on the day which will go to our fundraising effort for our chosen charity the Colin McRae Vision. The Vision will use all money raised by us to help fund a project in scotland. (The exact project has yet to be announced, only that it will be for the health of children)

I just hope the weather holds up!
So who is interested?

Hi, would love to come on your rideout, but unfortunately I won't be around that weekend. I live just south of Aberdeen.
I will keep an eye on your website to see how you guys are going, sounds like a great trip.
Good luck.

Hi! Chris,
Sorry I missed your BBQ last July. But Im planning to ride Highland Scotland this Fall. Would appreciate if you could assist me in getting a cheap campsite near your home between say first week of October. TQ. Amzah

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, the HUBB or to receive the e-zine. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive.
