Pammie and Suz's BBB fort bill weekender

I am organising a weekend of biking, booze and banter... looking at basing ourselves at the glen Nevis campsite in fort William, only 6 quid a night for camping :)

Three days of biking will involve a trip to Laggan Wolftrax, Cowhill, Nevis Range, Inchree Trails, maybe even Devils Staircase depending on what suits when we get there! Trails will be graded Red and Black so a decent level of technical riding will be required.

UPDATE!!!

Loose timings as follows:

Friday 4pm Cowhill

Sat 11am/11.30 Laggan

Sunday 11am/11.30 Inchree

Also please see the latest comments in the discussion bit below....

Bring suitable clothing and make sure your bike is working properly. Best to bring spare inner tubes, tools etc. Remember no lid no ride!

  • Adrian D.

    Hi, I know it's really early to ask, but can I have a lift. Will pay for petrol/snacks etc

    April 29, 2013

    • Adrian D.

      Even better they've just got back to me-they only charge per vehicle

      1 · May 4, 2013

    • Adrian D.

      Hi-where/when should I meet you?

      May 16, 2013

  • Nigel

    Hi could anyone give me the campsite phone to book a pitch - cheers!

    May 12, 2013

    • Kev

      Costs is £9.10 per pitch + 1 car then add £2.30 cost per person + £5 booking fee which is pretty crap. If it's just you cost will be £27.80 for 2 nights.

      May 13, 2013

    • Nigel

      Cheers Kevin - have booked now, and as you say, booking fee is rubbish.... you're ban on with the £27.80 too. Looking forward to this. Are we all bringing a contribution to the food/communal cooking?

      May 13, 2013

    I'll take a raincheck folks. Much as I would love to camp in the wettest place in Scotland and the midge capital of the universe the logistics are proving a wee bit difficult. Enjoy folks. Oh, and don't forget your water wings ;-)

    Hey, just had a look at their website, there's not a lot of accommodation left for that weekend. There is, right now, only 1 room left at the Blackwater Hostel. Fits 4 people, £120. Anyone interested? I don't mind taking the plunge and booking it as long as I get 3 other dead certs.

    Otherwise I think it's camping.

    April 8, 2013

    • Pammie b.

      And toasted marshmallows...

      April 8, 2013

    • Suzanne

      Sold :)

      1 · April 10, 2013

  • Pammie b.

    Will let you know ASAP arrangements for sleeping...

    April 9, 2013

    • Pammie b.

      It's the only way to survive camping...is it not!?

      1 · April 9, 2013

    • Paul G.

      Well there's booking into a hotel...... :D. If the wine and banter are flowing, sitting up all night is also an acceptable alternative to sleeping in a tent.

      1 · April 9, 2013

  • Jann L.

    I'm up for booze and banter. Will work out if there is something I can ride later.

    1 · April 8, 2013

    • Pammie b.

      Haha love it jann...cowhill you will enjoy :)

      April 8, 2013
