Arran 2009

News from John Roberts about this year's trip to Arran.

It's time for the Arran trip again!!! For about nine years the Arran trip was always at Easter and last year was a bit of a problem for ferries. So this is why we have the earlier date this year and it also allows us to fit in a trip to Skye. The weather at this time is usually good on Arran, being protected from the north and west by the Kintyre peninsula, and being quite far south and an island also helps. If you want to know more you can contact me or talk to one of the many members who went last year, they'll either rave on about it or break down into a gibbering heap.

As for travel arrangements if you avoid Good Friday and Saturday there is no need to book, also if you avoid these days the ferry is cheaper!!! Some members are going on Thursday 9th and others on Sunday 12th, all are returning on Sunday 19th. If you want to book the campsite you will need to book it yourself at Seal Shore Camping or by telephone on 01770 820320.

More about last year's trip can be found in these articles.

Any queries, contact John Roberts.
