    Do you know Margaret, I'd love to be there. We have family on the Black Isle so a visit would have been great. Sadly, or not perhaps, we are off to the meet in Suffolk and then the Lincoln Show. Hopefully next year? :BigGrin:

    We are in Inverness tomorrow and retrning home Saturday, we could make the 17th for the day, but think the 14th is an error and should read 24th.
    Sadly we are tied up for the weekend of the 24/25th but would certainly come for a Saturday another time.

    You are welcome to call in/stay overnight anytime ............... free stopovers, but if it is Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday night let us know first as we are often away midweek (our weekend):BigGrin:

    Your down as probable - look forward to meeting you. Including yourself/selves 3 more vans added today!

    If you are interested in wildcamping in Knapdale, near Taynuilt (on Loch Etive), Lochawe, Fuinary (Morvern), Glenelg/Sandaig, Lochs Garry, Quoich & Cluanie, (Don't try Kinlochourn - no overnight camping!) Applecross, Redpoint, Little L. Broom, can give some specific locations, but there are MASSES of possibilities all over the west coast!)

    See you soon
    Margaret

    You're booked from Friday. Look forward to meeting you both. Remember the guitar and flute - no competition this time from pipes (as far as I know!). BBQ / Ceilidh sceduled for Friday evening - eating in Safari room, provided by Ardgour, or if the weather is bad in our Schoolroom cafe.
    See you soon

    9 vans confirmed

    Bump:BigGrin:

    We have 9 confirmed vans and still one or two other possibilities. Not all staying all the time but all should be about for the BBQ on the Friday. Anyone else in the Inverness/Highland area 22nd - 25th Sept, who may be interested - feel free to come and join us.
    All the best and safe travels - particularly if you are in West or Central Scotland today.

    Hi Margaret
    I don't think we'll have our musical instruments with us this time but I'm sure we'll all have lots of fun anyway.
    See you next week.

    Not to worry - we'll just have to have a ceilidh without instruments:Doh:
    We're up to 11 vans, now, only need another 3 and this will be our biggest meet to date:Laughing:
    We are really looking forward to it - whatever the weather
    All the best and safe travels

    Some queries/information before you come:<o:p></o:p>
    1. Remember to bring food (and drink) for barbeque for Friday night. We would also appreciate donations of charcoal and/or gas or battery operated lights, and possibly another awning/shelter. Any offers?<o:p></o:p>
    2. NOTE: If the weather is bad we have alternative inside space – so don’t be put off by the weather!<o:p></o:p>
    3. We will be running a trip to Loch Ness and the Dores Inn early on Saturday evening. The food is excellent (ask anyone who has been at one of our meets/gatherings before). It would be helpful to know if you are interested. This is NOT a final commitment, but in order to arrange transport (approx cost £2.50 - £3.00 per person) and make a provisional booking it would be helpful. Also it is possible we may have to limit numbers – so get your name down NOW!<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    It’s going to be a great weekend with some fantastic people, so if you haven’t signed up yet – we still have space<o:p></o:p>
    See you there<o:p></o:p>
    Margaret<o:p></o:p>

    Love to be there as we are heading North next week but have to be in Stirling on 24th and then straight up to Inverness or Fort William after that.

    Enjoy the weekend

    Bill

    P.S. May pop in on the way back!

    We have a khyam utility tent that can be used as another shelter - will take 6 - 8 people.
    Battery powered lantern too.
    Not sure about going out on Saturday as we will have our two dogs with us. They are fine left in the MH for a few hours. How long would we be away for?
    Looking forward to it
