August it is for Drumlanrig :D

Mr P and Stephen why don't the both of you come up with a killer loop for Easter?


Ben Nevis loop is easily planned as the circuit exists as shown in earlier posts. Option to do two dayer if needed. Round and up the Ben :twisted:

Skye - centred on Sligachan I guess but haven't had chance to look at routes. Deffo a two dayer due to travelling distances IMHO.

Happy for either to be taken fwd :D


Either that or its Blackmount/Etive again :wink:





Ein :?:

MrP put it to the vote! What are the options? Arran, Skye, WHW or Ben Nevis. No reason not to do 2 one in easter one in october? Also we have arran planned for september so could make that a two dayer?

Accommodation options:

Ben Nevis Loop -
http://www.roybridgehotel.co.uk/roybridge-bunkhouse.asp

Skye - http://www.sligachan.co.uk/sligachan-bunkhouse.php

suitable?

now - choices, choices, choices, don't you just love living here :D


Fort Bill accommodation is obviously an option for the Nevis Loop, just liable to be stoud as usual. Plus the RB Hotel (as the Sligachan) does proper beer :wink:

Stay at Roybridge - do the Ben Nevis circuit on Saturday, go to Laggan for a burl on Sunday? Its only about 20mins up the road. Then off to Dalwhinnie and down the A9 for the eastcoasters :P

You know it makes sense.
