Weekend Trip to Drumnadrochit (Advance Note)
from Friday 25 to Monday 28 September 2020
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.
Having investigated, and finding no suitable mass accommodation for hillwalkers within the proximity of Beauly or Muir Of Ord, I've decided to move the base of this September Weekend outing to Drumnadrochit.
Drumnadrochit is a great base for the hills within the Glen Affric, Loch Mullardoch and Glen Strathfarrar region. Furthermore, the Fannaichs, The Torridon Mountains and The Cairngorms are only an hour’s drive away. The area also has a lot of local low-level walks.
On the Saturday of the weekend, it's my plan to climb my last Munro .. Carn Nan Gobhar at Loch Mullardoch .. so it would be a privilege for me if you can join me on this ascent and on the celebration afterwards. Some members of my family as well as a number of close friends have expressed an interest in coming along.
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 15 places.
The Lodge has a lot of facilities, as well as a restaurant and a well-stocked bar. It is my intention to have the celebratory meal here on the Saturday night.
Accommodation costs £60 for the weekend. Booking must be confirmed quite soon, and a deposit of £20 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 31 January, to book your place.
I'll be in touch about the deposit of £20 (per person) when the booking has been confirmed.
