Hello Scotch Perspectives!

I have spoken to several hotels on Speyside and  we now have a very good solution for a venue for our meeting in 2011. It's the Grant Arms Hotel in Grantown-on-Spey. http://www.grantarmshotel.com/

The dates of the meeting are

Friday 29 April until Monday 2 May 2011


Grant Arms Hotel

25 The Square

Grantown-on-Spey

Morayshire

PH26 3HF


Tel: 0800 043 8585   or  01479 872 526

The contact person is Heather Tait, but bookings can be made with anyone picking up the phone.

See reviews here: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g190790-d1106653-Reviews-Grant_Arms_Hotel-Grantown_on_Spey_Aviemore_and_the_Cairngorms_Scottish_Highlands_Scotland.html

It also scores "Superb" on guest reviews on the booking.com website.

It was visited by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1860 but their reviews are not available. They would be certain to approve of the Society for Scotch Perspectives on the History of Perception, even if they could work out what it means.

We have been offered an excellent rate of £54 per person per night for dinner, bed, and breakfast

There are only 39 spaces available since they have another group that weekend - a rally of classic cars. However, they will offer us a room in which we can all meet, and will arrange overflow accommodation at the Garth Hotel opposite. We will take dinner together in the Grant Arms, the same deal will apply to the price, and all bookings will be made through the Grant Arms. 

You can see the "overflow" Garth Hotel here: http://www.garthhotel.com/

with reviews here: http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g190790-d456945-Reviews-Garth_Hotel_Restaurant-Grantown_on_Spey_Aviemore_and_the_Cairngorms_Scottish_Highlands_Scotland.html

The dinner arrangements will involve pre-choosing the dishes that we each want to eat, since this will facilitate an efficient service for a large group.

You should book your room as soon as possible, directly with the hotel. It's best to do this by phoning the numbers given above. The person answering the phone will know about our meeting, so please mention Scotch Perspectives.


They can provide family rooms, cots, etc.

I rather like the idea of the classic cars - perhaps we can combine forces and organise a nocturnal Scotch Rally? You know the sort of thing, 18 laps of the town square with horns blaring... this could mark a new phase for the Society! (In jail... thus solving our accommodation problem for many years).

So - get on with it, book your rooms!

Cheers

Tom

Tom's new book

Tom's new book, with the original title of "Perception," is due to be published on the first day of Scotch Perspectives this year. Coincidence? Not sure if it is a good sign, but SAGE already have it on sale with £50 off (possibly this week only):

I thought I'd put this on the website just to decorate it a bit as nobody seems to use it.
