Dinner and AGM @ The Moorings Hotel, Banavie, Fort William Rescheduled to Saturday 15 May 2021

We have cancelled the 2020 Annual Dinner and booked the same hotel for Saturday 15 May 2021 for the 2021 Annual Dinner and 2021 AGM. All meal bookings have been carried forward though refunds are available on request. Room reservations at The Moorings have also been re-scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights but individuals need to reconfirm these with the Hotel. The Hotel will also take new room bookings and has good availability. Those with accommodation booked elsewhere will need to contact the accommodation provider directly.

Autumn Bagger Rambles 2021: Friday 12-Monday 14 November 2021 (three nights) - Alston Youth Hostel, Cumbria.

This 30 bed Hostel has been booked on an exclusive hire basis. Bookings and payments made by individuals for 2020 have been carried forward but there is plenty of space for others. Details, such as the date by which deposits must be paid,  will be confirmed in Summer 2021 but the price will be very reasonable. A communal meal is planned for Saturday night with a cooked breakfast option.  

If anyone wishes to book accommodation independently and then link up for walks etc., a Whatsapp group will be set up to facilitate this nearer the time.
