Highland All Terrain trip 2019 - *still going ahead*

Hello folks,

Just wanted to start a new thread for the 2019 trip as the old one seems to be getting a bit lost and cluttered.

As it stands, there are still spaces available and we could do with filling a couple more to make the trip viable!

Regards

Chris

Please see copied text from Ian's message in the previous thread;

Thank you all for your interest and comments on the trip, if you wish to take part, please could you email me at ian@highlandallterrain.co.uk and I will send out a booking form.

There will be a 20% deposit to hold tour place and the final balance seven days before the trip.
We need at least five vehicles to make it viable, if we don't reach that number and cant rework the tour, then all deposits will be returned, but looking at the amount of interest, I can't see that being a problem.

Plan is to meet in Fort William on the morning of the 3rd May, there is a campsite in Glen Nevis, make the most of the shower facilities, as it will be wild camping each night from then Very Happy

Chris,

What are the rough routes each day? Just starting to ponder re-supply options as we go round.

Thanks - I spend a lot of time working outside the UK and it just slipped on by. your trip unfortunately lands awkwardly for myself with work and also the wife’s. However I’ll keep my eyes posted for a 2020!!! The area is so beautiful, being a mtber and also having canoed the area, doing a spot of overland sounds heaven! I’ll have to settle on a quick weekend in Glen Affric before heading away next instead!

Hi all,
Unfortunately we have had another participant drop out on this trip so we are beginning to struggle to make it viable, if anyone would be interested in joining us for part of the trip (groups of 2 days ideally) thennthatvis something we could accommodate to ensure the trip goes ahead.

@zippo87

Regards

Chris

Hi Folks, scratch my earlier message- we are going to run a trip, with some possible revisions to routes.

If anyone would like to join us for 1, 2, 3 or the full 4 days then please get n touch.



Best Regards

Chris

Superb trip, thank you for this Chris.

Started with the Corran Ferry and a drive to Glenfinnan

A superb trip, the kids loved it and we got to experience all the seasons as a bonus.

How did I forget, we finished up with a Day on the main estate and some lessons in the main off road training area with Highland All Terrain.

Pics to follow of this bit when I get them as I was too busy driving to take photos Laughing Keith
