Weekend Trip to Drumnadrochit (Advance Note)
from Friday 23 to Monday 26 September 2022
Main map required is probably LandRanger 26 Inverness & Strathglass area, but the Sgurr na Lapaich group at Loch Mullardoch
is on Landranger 25 Glen Carron & surrounding area .. you may need other maps if you're walking en route or further afield.
This September Weekend outing will be based at the Loch Ness Backpackers Lodge at Drumnadrochit on the banks of Loch Ness.
Drumnadrochit is a great base for the hills within the Glen Affric, Loch Mullardoch and Glen Strathfarrar region. Furthermore, the Fannaichs, The Torridon Mountains, Glen Shiel, Loch Arkaig and The Cairngorms are only an hour’s drive away. The area also has a lot of local low-level walks.
We will be staying in the Loch Ness Backpackers Lodge, where there is ample accommodation within a mixture of dormitory, twin and family rooms. I have provisionally booked 10 places.
The Lodge has a lot of facilities including a well-stocked bar. Drumnadrochit has a number of restaurants and bars, so there are a number of options for eating out during the weekend.
Accommodation for the 3 nights will cost between £75 and £85 per person, depending on the type of room booked. Booking must be confirmed quite soon, and a deposit of one nights stay per person must be paid soon thereafter. Furthermore, if the numbers interested are more than the numbers provisionally booked, then presently there are more places available at the hostel.
If you are interested in going on this weekend trip, then please e-mail me right away, and certainly NO LATER than Friday 15 July, to book your place.
No payment is required at this stage .. I'll be in touch about the deposit when the booking has been confirmed.
