This sounds amazing.
Because I'm a total newbie to all this I think I'll wait until the next one because I probably won't be able to keep up due to lack of proper clothing and equipment. But I'm very interested in meeting up with lots of folk and I'll be keeping a close eye on this :)

Shelley - I wouldnt worry if you havent got the gear or the fitness. Its a mix bag of a group open to all levels of walker etc.. Assynt has some great wee hills which are very accessible. Let me know if you fancy hooking up.

Hi all :D Counting days to the meet now!

For campers: Yesterday we drove up A837 past Ardvreck Castle and I had a good look at "camping facilities". The castle car park would take about 10-12 cars and there is enough green grassy terrain to pitch many tents, also a small river (hopefully clean enough to take water from) flowing into the loch. A couple of large laybys a bit up the road as well. But beware of Ardvreck ghosts :lol: :lol:

A quick update on the meet.

Thanks BP for the input on the camping at haunted Ardvreck Castle.

I am pleased to confirm that's all the beds taken. Tommy the good man :clap: has gone and booked 4 beds. Didnt know it was legal to have 3 wives in Glasgow :)

I will confirm room allocations etc closer the time.

Sadly, like Graeme and Nathan, a no, due to be at a friend's wedding. That's 2 meets missed. Taking the chance to wish you all a great social meet (and a wee bit of walking)
