Scottish Campfire Mini Meet

Hiya!

It's time for another Scottish Campfire Mini Meet!

This will be an informal meet with just a few tents, a campfire (with tarp for bad weather protection!), and probably a ride out on the Saturday. We have yet to fine tuned the details but will work this out as we go along.


When...

Friday 19th October - Sunday 21st October


Location...

To be decided once we have an idea of numbers but we are looking at a few different campsites towards the south of Scotland which allow campfires!


We may need to buy some dry kindling & firewood (a £ or so each!?!), to get the fire started on both nights!


Look forward to seeing some old faces and meeting new friends,

Beej n Chris

Hi Ali,

Hope you had a great trip in europe... where did your bike take you?

And great news about the wood! Yay!

Can you let me have a rough idea of numbers from your area to help with sorting the location!

Looking forward to this, based in Gretna. Been to Berlin, Amsterdam and all over Ireland this year.

Morocco and Italy are two trips planned for next year!

Let's hope we can find a good campsite for this meet, it's getting chilly so a down bag will be a good idea too!

... it sure is... I had to scrape the car yesterday! brrrr... Big sleeping bag and thermals are a must! The campfire will keep us warm though!

Richard - looking forward to hearing of your travels, both past and future! Ireland is a possible for us next year so would be good to get some tips!

Matt - the choice of location has been narrowed down due to various factors... e.g. one campsites doesn't allow you to bring your own ! Will let you know the location asap! Hope you can make it!

Scottish Campfire Mini Meet - LOCATION

Hi All,

After much searching and looking into various campsites we have now decided on a venue for the Scottish Campefire Mini Meet. It's not been an easy search as various campsites have strange rules e.g. not allowing you to bring your own !

So... here are the details...

Pillars of Hercules Camping (& Organic Farm).
Falkland, Cupar, KY15 7AD.
Phone : 01337 857 749.
E-Mail : bruce@pillars.co.uk
Website : Camping at the Pillars
£8 per person per night.

Vegi Cafe : 10am-5pm.
Dont miss out on lovely organic food from our Cafe!

Farm shop :9-6pm Pillars of Hercules - Shop Information Page

Please book your camping pitch directly with the campsite but do let us know that your coming along! Quote HUBB MEET when you make your booking for the Bankings Field!!

Looking forward to meeting faces old and new and to finding another good campsite!

Beej & Chris

Not 100% sure if I can make it yet, but would it be classed as cheating if I were to drive up?

The little DR (125) doesn't sound the most appealing for the ride up.

Sounds like a nice place.
