2006 AGM Booking Details

Tom Troscianko sent the details out by e-mail, here they are if you missed it:

  • Dates: Friday 28 April - Monday 1 May 2006
  • Location: Gordon Hotel, The Square, Tomintoul, The Highlands AB37 9ET
  • Phone: 01807 580 206, ask for Ruth Evans
  • Hotel website: http://www.tomintoulhotels.co.uk/
  • Price: UK pounds 45 per person per night incl breakfast and 3-course dinner
  • Booking procedure:

    Send a UK chq for 15 pounds per person to me at the address below. This is a non-returnable deposit. Make chqs out to "The Gordon Hotel". Say what kind of room you want (single, twin, double, or there are some larger rooms. All at the same price per person).

    Please send the chq by 5 January 2006, but the sooner the better - I will fill the rooms in the order I get the chqs, so the sooner you send one, the more chance there is of getting the room you want!

    Nick, Christine, and I went along a few weeks ago and stayed there. It's a slightly creaky Victorian hotel in a fine village (Tomintoul is the highest village in the Highlands) with lots of space and a meeting room big enough for all of us to eat in and then have our meeting (with an extra adjoining space suitable for music and dancing).

    I attach a pic of us setting off on a walk, which shows the hotel in its village square location.

    Plenty of walks to be had - Cairngorms are just west of Tomintoul, and plenty of low-level walking. Hotel has fishing rights on local river (Avon, tributary of Spey). Food was good and there is a splendid pub next door with a pool table and a barmaid looking for a husband.

    Regarding travel: Easy Jet flies direct to Inverness from Bristol, Gatwick, Luton, and Belfast. I will hope to arrange transfers or perhaps minibus rental. I believe that some of the flights get in at similar times, so perhaps this will work well. More later.

    Public transport is difficult. Nearest station is Aviemore and then taxi. I have some numbers of taxi companies.

    So, for now - send me those cheques!
