Unofficial scotland

Post  speedy_daz on 2009-07-30, 14:29

Evening all

Well I can't make the offical trip north of the boarder this year and as I missed out last year too I had to do something about it.

So if anyone wants to join me in taking a chance on the weather it can't be any worst than the summer so far can it? ( but no midges and no kids ) Im heading to Scotland for 6 nights from Monday 5th October.
Accommodation is booked for upto 6 people in the following places.

Monday Tuesday and Wednesday nights here http://www.mountainbikeapartments.com/
Just down the road from Glentress and on doorstep of innerliethen trails.

Something different for Thursday Friday and Saturday night, Wooden tents. 250mts from dalbettie trails
http://www.gorsebank.com/gorsebank_equestrian/Gorsebank_Wigwams.html
I have booked 2 wigwams. There is bike storage plus a kitchen and dining area if it rains, if it doesn't theres a BBQ for each wigwam.
Pillows and sleeping bags required for this one.

I have arranged for Monday 5th to Sunday 11th October as I am in Wrexham for the weekend 3-4th October for mine and my nieces christening Shocked (Ive got to be christened to be her godfather)
So I maybe riding Llandegla on Saturday 3th October.


4 3 2 Places left

Hi Daz

Would have been tempted but I can't get time off work that early in the month. The Mountain Bike Appartments look great don't they, they were booked up when I was looking for August. We must get in there earlier next year!

sounds interesting. Once I've sorted out what I'm doing for the summer (hopefully happening over the weekend) I'll be able to be more definite.

Many thanks to Daren for another great Scotland week, well organised, great trails (biking and walking) and some good accommodation both at the Mountain Bike Apartments, Innerleithen and the Wigwams at Gorsebank farm, Dalbeattie. We were very lucky with the weather to and although cloudy most days we only had rain at night time.
