WALKHIGHLANDS SUMMER MEET, RATAGAN. JULY 12/13 2019
by 2manyYorkies » Tue Dec 18, 2018 7:50 pm
We have exclusive use of the stunningly located Ratagan SYHA hostel, right on the shores of Loch Duich, with perfect access to all the Kintail hills and many more besides, for the nights of July 12th and 13th, 2019.
Pricing, it's high season, but I'm doing my best to keep it reasonable ....
For two nights it's £45, ie £22.50 per night for the hostel.
For just one night it's £27.50. (I take a risk on not being able to fill the other night, but if I do then you get a fiver back).
PM me for payment details to secure your place ...
Room details: we have rooms with 10, 8, 8, 4-5 and 4 (plus organisers billet). If you have any preferences let me know, can't guarantee complete satisfaction but will try.
For the campers, there is Shiel Bridge site with it's own facilities a mile or so away. Anyone who wants to chance it in a tent on the loch side next to the hostel, and use the facilities (kitchen/showers/spa/sauna ...etc) in the hostel a £5 per person per night charge would be reasonable. (Disclaimer: the spa and sauna may be shut for maintenance )
In and paid (ish!) so far for the hostel (apologies for the mix of WH and real names):
Anne & Darren H
Gary (Backpacker), Leia and Ledi
iainj1958 + 1
Bod & Val
Blackpanther & Kevin
Stunning loch side location with views to the Sisters of Kintail ... (nearly) always bathed in sunshine ...
