This is a slight departure from our normal accommodation as it is two shared houses, breakfast will be provided. Other meals we can decide on later.

Accommodation here is approx £135 per couple for two nights.

Accommodation has also been booked for Benbecula is
the Dark Island Hotel - price per double room is £120 and includes breakfast.

Please go ahead and book ferries as per the  details above. Let us know when you have done so.

Further details for Heb Run:-

1. We will meet at Tarvie (just past Rogie Falls) on Friday 2nd June at 8:15am for a sharp get-away – last check in is 9:30am and the Ferry leaves Ullapool at 10:30am

2. Payment for No.5 Drinishader has to be given on arrival in cash (they do not have credit card facilities) – its £138 per couple for the 2 nights and this includes breakfasts both days and dinner on the Saturday night – we will gather the money on the ferry.

3. Eating and Drinking – I know this is not really a top priority for this group of car enthusiasts (emmmmmm right!) but there is a slight departure from our “norm” for this trip.  Dinner on Friday night is a “Pot-Luck DIY” affair. We have 2 kitchens (so space might be limited) and a lot of good intentions so we are asking you to get in touch with your cooking buddies (detailed below) and cook your course of our wonderful group meal (this could be a roaring success or a disaster…….pretty much up to you!) We will have 2 hours in Stornoway on arrival so you can buy food there (happy to do a Co-Op stop on the way to Harris), order in advance or take with you.  For those not at the meeting last week there was a discussion about Fridays dinner being fillet steak – (not for Jane!) if you are all ok with this we can order them from the butchers over there.  This will leave the other main coursers (that’s a word) to organise the accompaniments.   
Starters (16) The Sinclairs
