    <!-- message --> Hi all, I added this to the meets callender today.

    I am currently arranging a Scottish meet over the easter period.

    The site identified is the Loch Ness caravan site. A site we have visited several times over the years and find the owner Bob a helpfull gentleman if not a true Scot when coming to discount arranging

    The site is the only site located on the famous loch and you can spot the monster from the site. There is a little beach area for children to lobb stones in to the loch. There is ample nice walks from the site once accross a pretty main road that is well shielded from the site.

    The site is within easy distance of the Loch ness tourist shops and the Fort Augustus area. There is a bus stop outside the site or of course you could take you van.
    There is also fishing ot be had

    The advantage of this site is there is a meeting area/bar and pool/darts meeting area whereby evening festivities can be arranged. Meals can be booked by prior arrangement.

    We are only intending to do a couple of nights here as we will then with some others intend on driving up to the Westeross and remote coastal areas of Scotland. If you wished to join us for that as well it would be a pleasure to allow our Scottish motorhome guides to take you. however if you wished to just remain at Loch Ness then that would not be a problem and we may well venture back down later in the week.

    Scotland is a truly remarkable place to tour in a motorhome, and for those that have not done so now is a great opportunity to visit this wonderful country..

    I have provisionaly booked 5 pitches and can get more without a problem. Once I know of interested parties. Should you wish to join us then please PM me so I can add you to the list. The price at present is £16 per night inc 2 adults.
    There will be a £20 deposit payable to the site once I have confirmed numbers.

    link to the site is here:
    Loch Ness Caravan Park - Holiday on the banks of Loch Ness

    Unfortunately I am not sure if Bob can take RVs I can confirm this later, however if enough RVs would like to come I am sure we could arrange a different site in an attepmt to avoid exclusion

    Sounds great, but we are arranging a weekend meet and the other end of the country in Deal, Kent.

    We will be fishing but wont be catching old Nessie.

    Have a great time

    but they're now extinct in yorkshire Jim,
    these yokels saw to that at the end of the 1800's
    a net would catch a few to be eaten as a delicacy but a shotgun killed many to be turned into haggis suppers/sausages for the hoy-paloy.

    my grandad is second on left, front row, and he told me so it must be true.

    Well good news,

    If your RV is 35ft or under you can join us on our whiskey drinking Haggis hunting party.

    I have confirmation from the site owner that RVs up to 35ft are most welcome.

    so get your names down, they dont eat English people in Scotland anymore :Rofl1:
