That’s right folks, it’s time to get that ginger wig on, admire men in skirts and drink the volume of Loch Ness in whiskey! It’s our RABBIE BURNS TRIP 24th-26th of January.
This is definitely not a trip to miss if you want the ultimate Scottish experience! We are going to the beautiful area of Cannich, which provides access to lots of hills and Munros around the very scenic Glen Affric. See the walk highlands website for a description of some of the local walks that might be available. There will be organised walks taking place on both Saturday and Sunday.
We’ll be staying in the very cushy 4 star BCC Loch Ness hostel, complete with en suite bathrooms and twin bedrooms! Poetry, songs and speeches will take place on the Saturday night, as a tribute to Burn’s life and work, along with a nod to his drinking habits. Haggis, neeps and tatties will be on the menu of course.
As always drivers please get in touch asap! As a thank you, you will get £10 off your trip and a pre-sign for it! We need both another minibus driver and car driver! If interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
To everyone else we’ll be having sign up for this trip on Tuesday 21st January (next Tuesday!) at 8:30pm at the new venue of Malones, the trip is the standard price of £45.
We do expect winter conditions, so we’ll be asking people to have winter boots for the weekend, if you can bend them with your hand then you need something more stiff soled, check out Tiso on Commercial Street to rent a pair for the weekend (only £5 with club membership). There’s more information here about appropriate gear, check it out!
