Castle Creavie - 'Backender' 30-Sep,01-Oct - max six places
« on: 24 August 2017, 01:25:17 PM »

 :woot :sun :woot

Following the resounding success of last year's exploratory outing
http://foc-u.co.uk/index.php?topic=21115.0 have decided to do this again.

Saturday lunchtime congregate in Moffat on the Saturday pm (lunchtime) in Moffat for the obligatory fish supper - meeting in Moffat at 13:00 ~13:30

Sat afternoon a wee bimble around Galloway before terminating at Kircudbright to stock up on 'essential supplies' prior to arrival at the Castle Creavie bunkbarn (the Hay Barn).


Spaces in proper bunks are limited to 6 No. (proper beds with quilt and pillow) but there is also space to doss on the floor.


Note this is not a frenzied raucous venue (like Spring Meet) as it's adjacent to the farmhouse and a holiday letting cottage i.e. no fires, no revving tits off bikes at 3am etc etc.

Sunday - full cooked breakfast in the farmhouse £7.50 per person or do your own thing then depart for home.

Could make into a two (or even three nighter) if interest e.g, say Friday pm Borders - Sat push north somewhere (Kinlochleven?)  - Sunday at Castle Creavie, Monday home - I guess with the option to do just one night or three etc.  My preference is just the Saturday night but at a push I could have Friday off.  - AS IT STANDS I HAVE BOOKED THE SATURDAY NIGHT ONLY - the option is there for Friday but as I said, I'll likely just be doing the Saturday - anyone wanting Friday or Sunday can contact Castle Creavie direct and make your own arrangements.

Castle Creavie costs are: Bunks are £15 pppn.  Additionally, reckon on about max. £15 each for food/beer etc (breakfast extra - per night) - I'm probably going to cook spicy chicken wraps and spicy beef/tacos.

I have booked the Hay Barn for Sat 30-Sep - waiting for the proprietor to confirm the max occupancy (but likely 6 No. for fire regs compliance)-  8 max should be fine with the last two takers dossing on the floor (as it stands currently this is Craig and Midden)

Takers:


1- Me - confirmed (+ breakfast)
2 - Heath - confirmed (+ breakfast)
3 - Daz -confirmed (+ breakfast)
4 - TuonoV - -confirmed (+ breakfast)
5 - Chrisbiker + 1 - confirmed (+ breakfast x2)
7 - Louthyz - confirmed (+ breakfast)
8 - Midden?

Make sure you all have cash to pay the bunk costs + breakfast (£22.50 total for both) - anyone who wants to can send me money upfront if they want (PayM via my mobile number - or bank xfer - message me for details)


Update 10-Sep:  right peeps plan is:
  • Chris and his mate are staying in Keighley on the Friday pm (brave) - Heath will kindly 'collect' them Sat am and make way to Devil's Bridge
  • Ventzi is staying at mine Friday pm - so we'll see the rest of you (inc. Craig) at Devil's Bridge
  • Meet at Devil's Bridge 08:30
  • Meet any of the Scottish contingent in Moffat 13:00 - 13:30
  • then as above

I'd be game for this Stu. I could do 30th September or 7th October (30th September is preferred as already have the day off)

I'd be happy with a 2 nighter too.
