am actually writing the full add now for the journal. But the venue is Roybridge, dates are Saturday 16th to Saturday 23rd February. £120 for 7 nights.
Silly question!! But which is the trespass car park?
Bed space already sold!! Meet now full again 🙂
Winter meet is now full again. All beds taken!
Sonja and I will be there, is there to be a communal feast? 🙂
Did you manage to get a double room Dave?
Just booked in for both nights. There’s already no double rooms left for either night and only two twins left for Friday night and approx. 20 for Saturday night. Marky 🙁
Can you book Sonja and I in for Sat night tea in the posh pub please? I’m having a very full on time at work at the moment (and have to be in exeter on Sunday!) so we’ll just make a day trip of it 🙂May 10, 2016 at 4:09 pm in reply to: Tonights Inclement weather – awesome instead of Stanage #2103
There’s also a new guidebook (2015) in English called:
‘Mont Blanc: Classic & Plaisir Guidebook 2015’ by Marco Romell
Have some leave approved…….and have ordered the book! 🙂
There’s quite an expensive but absolutely stunning (coffee table) book by Philippe Batoux called Mont Blanc: the finest routes.
You probably already know about it but for anyone who doesn’t, it’s like a modern version of Gaston Rebuffats 100 best routes in the Mont Blanc Massif.
It came out 2 years ago so takes into account climate change etc and the photos are great!
And linen provided means duvets and pillows are provided (bring your own towel). Sleeping bags not required unless the kind of bothy related folly that Tim is planning floats your boat 🙂
Few extra bits of info that I asked the guardian in Torridon about, including an earlier winter check in time and free wifi!!
All linen provided, bring own towels or hire for £2
Yes we take card payments for payments of about £10 or more, less than that is a 50p charge. Local shop does cashback.
Winter reception is from 4pm but I will be around from 3pm. We will be cleaning the hostel until about 2pm as people will have checked out that morning, so any time after 3 is fine.
We have had new wifi installed today (free), I had better test it to make sure it works!
Bike hire: I would email firstname.lastname@example.org. They are closed at the moment but normally reopen for valentines weekend (but the pub will probably be only open thur to sun) http://www.thetorridon.com/activities/. I would expect them to be able to provide bikes if they have a bit of notice. Nearest other pubs 7 and 10 miles (sheildaig and Kinlochewe)
Shop: Local shop/café is wed to sat 10-5. Nearest other shops are 7 miles shieldaig, 10 miles Kinlochewe. Both open 6 days a week. You could also do a tesco click and collect! The van comes to the car park at the Torridon Inn car park on tue and fri (twice on both days 10am and 5pm I think), you pick the shopping up from there.
See you up there!
Good luck Jonathan, may the dough be with you 🙂
And remember to get some pics, especially if there’s a soggy bottom!
Ha Ha ha, I’m sure that’s absolutely fine Mark….over to you Richard!! 🙂
