Hello!

Sorry, this year so far has been a bit of a blur with having a a baby and work commitments- there has been a lot of other stuff going on in the background with regard to planning a potential trip.

This trip is a completely different set up to previous years!

Ian has been working with a number of landowners to gain permission to use a variety of tracks, over a wide area to put together a fantastic, multi day trip- 4 days starting near Fort William and ending Close to the Ardverikie estate with a minimum of 27 miles a day off road with the opportunity to wildcamp in some absolutely stunning locations. The offroad sections are interspersed with some beautiful road miles taking in some of the best driving roads Scotland has to offer!

The suggested milages for each day are as follows

Day 1 30 offroad/116 on road - Starting at Strontian- Ending up at close to Loch Carron
Day 2 27 offroad/79 on road - Starting near Loch Carron- Ending at Red Point
Day 3 34 offroad/116 on road- Starting at Red Point- Ending near Tomatin
Day 4 44 offroad/47 on road- Starting Near Tomatin- Ending on the Ardverikie Estate

Given the number of estates and amount of private land we would cross- as well as securing permission to camp, for the 4 days it would be £500 per vehicle

At this stage, I am looking for interest- we would need a minimum of 5 vehicles to make the trip viable. I can firm up details closer to the time, if it becomes viable to run.

I currently propose to run the trip over 4-7th of May which is the bank holiday weekend.


Best Regards

Chris

Chris,

Congratulations on the mini defender fan.

Trip sounds great, I'll need to run it past the bank manager and get back to you.

Sounds and looks amazing!! An amazing opportunity to see and go places not normally possible. I so want to join you but think 1500 miles of diesel plus joining fee might unfortunately rule me out Big Cry Let me see what I can do... Whistle James

Hi Guys,

Looks like we should be able to hit numbers for this- I'm meeting up with Ian on Saturday so will probably start a fresh post/topic once I have had a chat with him.

Regards

Chris
