Hello everyone! After some discussion in another thread, it looks like quite a few F&C'ers would be interested in a trip to bonny Scotland. So, I thought I'd put up a thread and poll to try and see how many people would fancy an F&C holiday up there this Autumn. The Highlands and the Isle of Arran were mentioned in the other thread as possible areas to look at and I've included other areas in this general poll too. It would have to be a week's holiday due to the distance that some people might have to travel. However, if we were able to find suitable accommodation with spare beds it could be possible for someone to come for less than a week. If you're interested, please vote and also post up more details such as whether you would be on your own or with a partner, any specific dates you couldn't come and any preferences with regard to location / area etc. Let's see if we can make this happen! Confirmed: @Mrs Snap & @Andysnap (full week, unavailable early September) @Carl Hall & Angi (full week, unavailable 19-21 Oct) @Woodsy & @nikki_s (full week) @raathistle (full week) @kendo1 (full week) & Evey (couple of days) @steveo_mcg (couple of days) @ChrisR maybe plus 1 (full week) @StephenM & Sue (full week) @RaglanSurf & Shireen (full week) @medwaygreen (full week) @Peter B (Cannot commit to dates at the moment so will make a decision nearer the time if dates and spare beds are available) @desf (Cannot commit to dates at the moment so will make a decision nearer the time if dates and spare beds are available) Interested so far: Looks like the Lowlands and November are probably out. Update 3rd April: Cuilcheanna House booked from Sat 6th to Sat 13th October. http://www.cuilcheanna.co.uk/ http://www.unique-cottages.co.uk/cottages/west-coast/lochaber-ardnamurchan/cn3-cuilcheanna-house? Confirmed attendees are: @Mrs Snap & @Andysnap (both 7 nights) @Carl Hall & Angi (both 7 nights) @Woodsy & @nikki_s (both 7 nights) @raathistle (7 nights) @kendo1 (7 nights) & Evey (2 nights, Sat & Sun only) @steveo_mcg (2 nights, Sat & Sun only) @ChrisR (7 nights) @StephenM & Sue (both 7 nights) @RaglanSurf & Shireen (both 7 nights) @medwaygreen (7 nights) Costs have been calculated based on 14 people staying for the whole week and 16 people staying for 2 nights. Rental plus booking fee is £1738 which equals £248.29 per night. (£248.29 x 2) / 16 = £31.04 per person for 2 nights on Sat & Sun (£248.29 x 5) / 14 = £88.67 per person for 5 nights from Mon - Fri (therefore £88.67 + £31.04 = £119.71 per person for 14 people staying the whole 7 nights) Deposits of £36.92 per person have been taken from everyone staying the whole week. The two stopping for the weekend only have paid the full amount of £31.04. Balance is due before 25th August and I will be in touch to collect monies a couple of weeks beforehand. There is a refundable good housekeeping deposit of £400 which will also need to paid on this date.
