The club is proposing to book all the beds at the hostel but has a deadline of the end of February to make a firm commitment. Currently beds cannot be booked with Hostelling Scotland by individual members due to the coronavirus restrictions.

Beds have been allocated in the order members rsvp’d (firstly to those on the list for last year’s event who transferred their bookings to this year and then those who rsvp’d for the rescheduled event this year and want accommodation).

There are still about 10 dormitory beds available (in 8 or 10 bed dormitory rooms) available.

Any further members who wish to attend the weekend and would like a dormitory bed in the hostel if it were possible should indicate the preferences in the answer to the pop-up question when they RSVP.

If Hostelling Scotland or HF has to cancel the hostel booking for any reason, then members who have booked beds will be reimbursed. Otherwise members will only get a refund if they cancel if someone else takes over their reservation.

Of course you can book your own accommodation elsewhere locally.
In the light of previous experience on public holidays, we advise you to do so soon.

Cost of beds
(A) Dormitories: £60/person for 3 nights;
(B) 4 bed rooms: £70/person for 3 nights;
(C) 3 bed room: £80/person for 3 nights.

Any accommodation booked must be paid for by the end of February 2021 to enable the club to commit to booking the whole hostel.
