Hi-5's go West

Friday 29th May to Sunday 31st May 2015

Andy and Dorothy have volunteered to organise our main event for 2015- a trip to the Western Isles.

Friday - Meet at the Thistle Hotel @ 8.00am for coffee, leaving 8.30am sharp
Head to Uig, Skye (driving time 3 hours+) Lunch stop here
Ferry check-in, latest 13.15
Sailing at 14.00 - arrive Tarbet 15.40
Drive through Harris to Lewis - check in to hotel - Dinner and relax

Saturday - "Hi-5s do Lewis": Blackhouse @ Arnol, Callanish Standing Stones (with lunch stop), Reef Beach and Stornoway
Then dinner and relax

Sunday - "Hi-5s do Harris" : Beach, beach, beach! Lunch in Tarbet.  Ferry check-in latest 15.15.  Sailing at 16.00, arrive Uig 17.40
Dinner break on way home.....chips in Kyle (weather permitting!)

Accommodation will be limited and ferries need to be  booked in advance so get your names down early to avoid disappointment.

We have managed to secure 6 rooms and 2 chalets at Borve House Hotel for Friday 29th May for 2 nights.
(I have booked them through so we can cancel them up until the 28th of May so this is not set in stone if anything changes)
The rooms are for 2 pax each but the chalets have 2 rooms (1 double and 1 twin) so there is additional options there, there is enough for 20 people maximum which might help with the demand.
The prices vary on room types but the prices below are per room for the 2 nights
2 x Deluxe Double 284
2 x Standard Double 246
1 x Standard Twin 246
1 x Family room 316
2 x Chalet (per couple) 223
All the prices include breakfast and they have a restaurant on site and serve dinner.


(From Andy & Dorothy 15th January)

We are not sure if your aware but there are issues with the Ullapool Ferry Terminal with regards to the new ferry.

We are therefore thinking that it would be a good idea to book ASAP a return journey from Skye to Harris as that ferry will be a safe bet and if they don't get the linkspan fitted in time for our journey then the Uig/Tarbet ferry will be very very busy.

Outward -29th May UIG - Tarbert  departing  14.00 arrives 15.40

Return - 31st May Tarbert - UIG departs 16.00 arrives 17.40

Please update the website to let us know when you have booked the ferry through CALMAC as above. The cost is 84.40 for 2 adults and a car.

If we could have someway of knowing who has booked their ferry that would be great (website or facebook), just as a guarantee for the rooms.

Cars booked so far (6)
