2010 Places still available

From Daljit, sent to the mailing list:

Happy Easter !!

Just a quick update, we still have 9 Twin/Double Rooms available - despite having over 40 of us attending already.

It's not too late to book. You just need to send me a £20 deposit per person and let me have details of the nights you wish to stay, contact telephone number and any special Room & Dietary requirements.

Don't forget it's only £55/person/night including a 3 course Dinner, Bed & Breakfast. So, please do let friends/colleagues know asap.

Thank you and look forward to seeing many of you on 30th April.

Best Wishes

2010 AGM details posted to mailing list by Daljit Singh

Following a very enjoyable recce trip we've decided on the Lovat Arms Hotel in Beauly as the venue for our 2010 Scotch Perspectives meet.

Beauly is an ancient and picturesque market town just a short twelve mile drive from Inverness with plenty of nice walks, a nature reserve close by and the Glen Ord Distillery close by.

I've managed to negotiate what we feel is an excellent deal of just £55 per person per night for bed, breakfast and a three course dinner. The supplement for single occupancy is only an extra £15 (reduced from £20).

I have provisionally booked 30 rooms for us from Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May (Bank Holiday).

Please see below for details:
Rooms - The Hotel has 34 rooms. This includes 3 single rooms, 12 twin/double rooms in an Annexe and 22 rooms in the main hotel. This also includes 3 Family rooms and there are Cots available too. Almost all the rooms have been recently refurbished.
Food - There will be a 3 course dinner each night with 3 choices for each course. The menu will change each night with Vegetarian options and any special dietary requirements catered for.
Whisky Tasting Evening - We have been offered exclusive use of the Dining Room (that we will be using for evening meals) for our Whisky evening presentations etc.
Parking - Plenty of Free Parking in front of the Hotel,on street and square opposite.
Booking - Please can you forward a £20 cheque deposit to me - made payable to 'Lovat Arms Hotel' - and post to Nimlet Gate, Nimlet, Cold Ashton, Wilts SN14 8JX or if you prefer you can pay your deposit using a credit/debit card directly to the Hotel. However, in either case I still need you to forward the following to me please:
Names of those staying
Type of room preferred twin/double/single/family with a Cot?
Nights you are staying
Any special dietary requirements
Contact Telephone number
We really do hope that we will have one of the best turnouts yet. To ensure you don't miss out on a great weekend please book early!! :)

Look forward to receiving your booking confirmations asap and to seeing you in April 2010.

Best Wishes

AGM 2008 - progress report

It looks like the hotel is now ALMOST fully booked for our May bank holiday AGM! There are 5 more double rooms in the cottages outside available at the standard agreed price of £31/night, so book NOW in order to avoid disappointment! Ring the Hunting Lodge Hotel on 01583 421323. However, there is a spill-over hotel available just down the road from this one just in case.
The Springbank Distillery is still avoiding me with an answer if they can open for us on the Saturday or not, but I keep working on it. It is not unthinkable we will have to be satisfied with a Monday morning visit before heading back off home, but I'll keep you posted.

So looking forward to this!

There looks to be a congregation of about 40 in all heading for Dunkeld with an age span from 4 months to rather older. Dinner on Friday will be around 8.00pm which should accommodate those arriving by train at Dunkeld's stately station.

2007 AGM Details

From Alan via Tom:

Things are moving in preparation for next year. A month or so back Nick, Christine and I surveyed a number of local possibilities (Peebles withdrew) and the Royal Hotel Dunkeld has become next year's venue.
With Nick and Christine retreating to Japan almost immediately thereafter, it just leaves me to pass on the good news.

The terms are £38.00 per person (DB&B) per night and a down payment of £20 will secure a room at this stage. Please make the cheques out to the Hotel but send them to me at: [e-mail if you need Alan's address, I don't want to put it on here!] Let me know whether you want a single, double or twin room - or whatever. As usual the earlier the reply the better the chance of getting what you want.

Detail concerning the hotel can be found at As you will see, the hotel is on the main street in Dunkeld but there is plenty of parking space at the rear. Equally, there is a railway station serving Dunkeld itself so travel should be easier than most years.

Look forward to your replies.

Alan W.
