Weekend Trip to Arisaig (Advance Note)
from Friday 22 to Monday 25 September 2017
Main map required is LandRanger 40 Loch Shiel, but
you may need others if you're walking en route or further afield.
Yes .. it's a change of location for this year’s September long weekend trip!
Unfortunately, even at this stage of the year, it has proved to be very difficult to find somewhere on Skye that had availability and didn’t cost the earth! So the decision was made to move to the Lochaber peninsula and make our base at Arisaig .. a 50 minute journey from Fort William, and a mere 6 miles from Mallaig.
Our base for the 3 night stay will be split .. because even at this stage finding a hotel with enough rooms was a challenge .. between The Old Library Lodge and Restaurant and The Arisaig Hotel, just a 2-minute walk apart.
Travel will generally be by car pool on the Friday. Car sharing can be organised beforehand if necessary .. please let me know in your e-mail.
The cost for B&B for the 3 nights will be £130 per person, and I've provisionally booked 2 twins and 4 doubles.
There are plenty of walking and outdoor activities, including kayaking, available locally .. plus with the Mallaig ferry being very near, for those people who want to venture to Skye or the Small Islands, this is a good option.
If you are interested in going on this trip, then please e-mail me right away, and certainly NO LATER than Wednesday 31 May, to book your place.
PLEASE NOTE: Once the numbers are confirmed at 31 May, I'll be asking for a deposit of £50 (per person) to secure the accommodation bookings.
