BOOKINGS FOR THIS EVENT NOW CLOSED!
We are now just over a month away from our magical trip along the West Highland Way in Scotland which is bound to be a brilliant highlight for the group.
Most places were reserved by interested members last June when the idea of doing this was first raised but we have now secured further places so a small number of additional bookings can be taken.
Whilst some will want to do the first days walk from Glasgow for completeness, this is not a very exciting part of the overall route so we have made this first day optional with everyone then gathering at Balmaha on Thursday night to set off in earnest on Good Friday. We will arrive in Fort William, weary but happy on the following Wednesday afternoon (24th).
Here is a map of our planned route:-
Our costings include all accommodation between the Thursday arrival in Balmaha and our arrival in Fort William and baggage transfer (20kg per person) for each overnight stay in between. Whilst most of the accommodation is hostel based or similar, we have allowed for one twin/double roomed hotel stay in the middle as a special treat!
A full breakdown of the itinerary and options is available at the following link
Our costings do not include travel, to and from Scotland, accommodation for Wednesday 17th for those planning to do the Glasgow to Balmaha walk on the Thursday or accommodation once we arrive in Fort William which due to everybodys differing arrival and departure requirements we will leave to be done individually.
We shall collect a £40 per person food kitty contribution for all the meals we purchase collectively but individuals should make there own payments for pub / hotel meals out. We shall keep an accurate breakdown of kitty expenditure and any surplus will be split or put towards the costs of our final meal out.
Overall cost for the trip is £199 which now needs to be paid when you book. Cancellation with more than 14 clear days notice will result in a full refund less a 15% deduction but only if we can resell your place as all our costs for the trip will still have to be met.
Further information will follow shortly but if you have any queries at all please address them to [masked] or[masked] (txt only please).
Everyone who has done this trip raves about it afterwards and it is so much more fun in a group. Join us!
Once we arrive in Fort William, some of us plan to stay on for a few days and tackle some of the amazing hills in the area including Ben Nevis via the CMD arrete if conditions are appropriate.
This will be published as a separate event shortly.
