shock Big Mac 2011 (DATES CONFIRMED - Ride Out: Sat 23rd July & Sun 24th July)

Post  Rosco on Fri Jan 14 2011, 00:51

We are staying in a Big Scottish Highland Castle (not a :bounce: bouncy :bounce: one) for circa £30 a night (should be cheaper).
Youth Hostel in Ullapool for circa £20 a night.

We expect to visit John O' Groats on one day and Applecross on the other.

I require a non-refundable deposit of £25 to secure your place as soon as possible, as I have to pay this to this up front. There is other accomodation nearby.

A sign up page will be appearing soon with all the details.

Cheers
Rosco

-Booking beds?
- Meals?
And perhaps some prices??

Perhaps i can look lovely and my boss says ok and i can come to BigMäc...
Anything I can pass on to our potential German visitors for this meeting would be much appreciated medal-2

There seems to be quite some interest, I would guess at least as many of them wish to make the trip (maybe more) as we did to the Eifel.

Peeps, sorry but unforunately family reasons (Simons 2 week holidays begin on the 22nd July) stop me from attending this years ride out.

I'll peruse the remaining ones, TOL & SnT and see if I can fit attend these instead.

And I was so much looking forward to meeting you all again. Crying or Very sad

Well, it just might be later in the year. great

Oh Boy Oh Boy Oh Boy

Brace yourself for the BAD news (good news to follow)

This email fell on my doorstep last night

--
I am writing to you with regards to your booking at Carbisdale Castle Youth Hostel.

Due to the extreme weather during the winter the Castle suffered significant water damage. As a result of this and the emergency works that need to be undertaken the Hostel will not be open until September 2011. With this information it is with much regret that we are currently unable to offer your accommodation at the Castle as originally booked.

We appreciate that you will be disappointed with this news and as a valued guest; we are able to offer for your consideration alternative accommodation at the following locations.

The options which may be available are:

Aviemore

Inverness

Ullapool

Cairngorm Lodge

Torridon

Should you not wish to take up the alterative choice of location at this time, we are able to discuss other options which may include a transfer of your booking to another date or cancellation of your booking with full refund.
SYHA Hostelling Scotland sincerely apologises for any inconvenience caused to you due to this urgent works programme.
Please do let us know how you wish to proceed.
--

I know I was very much looking forward to staying at the castle (as I'm sure you were too) but it seems that this unexpected event requires us to find alternative accomodation.

GOOD NEWS
--------------

They could accomodate us at either Torridon or Ullapool.

I've gone ahead and booked Ullapool for all 26 of us (so far) as it does have more facilities and amenities nearby than Torridon does.

I'll get details on the room setup and cost in due course ( I suspect it will be the same or very similiar)

If this does not suit you then please let me know ASAP as there is normally a cancellation charge although I suspect/hope they would waive it in the circumstances as long as it was done very soon.

Anyway the place we will be staying is now [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Staying here rather than at the castle will allow us to take in more of the West Coast which has beautiful scenery. All we need now is some nice weather!

Oh no! That's a real blow. I was really looking forward to staying at the castle king
Still, let's hope they do a good job so we can visit next year?!

I'm glad to hear they've been helpful in suggesting alternative accommodation as I know this is the last thing you want to happen just as it seemed all was arranged. Ross is doing a brilliant job. great Please go with his suggestions if at all possible.

The hostel at Ullapool looks like it's got a few more local amenities nearby so not such a step down - but it's still not a castle grumpy Hope you can re-plan the route without too much trouble and can someone else work on the weather? Ross has enough to do.

Chris
