"the Loch Ness Highland Resort, previously Cumberlands" is no longer the Cumberlands known and loved by many a biker. The new owners have invested in lodges and pods that, I fear, will change the 'campsite' feel of the place.
The bunkhouse/lodge is closed and even the shelter by the hikers camping green has been enclosed for storage purposes.
I hope that I'm wrong, that it's still a welcoming, affordable, relaxed site; the location is unparalleled, but maybe this year you might scout future alternatives?

PS for anyone booking up, there's no rally or 'meet' to ask to book in with, just a load of folk happening to go the same time and place.

I have had an email back from them Izzy saying folks are still welcome, but I haven't looked into prices etc. I imagine they will have gone up following change of ownership.
Lindsey and I aren't using the site because L doesn't camp anymore. We considered a pod but could get more space for the same money so have booked an apartment.
The nice thing about Fort Gus is that its small enough to be scattered around the village but still close.
As I said at the beginning it's up to everyone to sort their own accommodation.

I'm 20mins north of Edinburgh (over the bridge), if anyone needs accommodation for a night (on our way up!). I have 2 spare rooms. My back garden is about a tennis court, so it could take 8 or 9 tents, if you were super keen to camp! Breakfast? I'll see what I can do 😃🤘🏻

They have weather haggis's (haggi?), not pixies. And they can be stroppy, inclement buggers if you upset them.

Only 4 working weeks to go.

If you're thinking "should I go?", the answer is, of course, "yes".

In two weeks time well be there :-)

Anyone fancy meeting up for the ride north?

One week to go.
Anyone that going feel free to PM me to exchange numbers.
Failing that a quick Saturday evening tour of the bars along the canal ( the Bothy is good) will soon find us. And if we ain't there try the campsite bar.
Anyone wanting to ride up in a group aim to be at the Annandale services between 11 & 11:30... this plan is subject to change without notification, see pm and mobile numbers above 😆

Steve - Cant wait and will see you at Annandale with John
Is everyone on the list still coming? - All seems quiet on this forum for only a couple of days to go (lol)

I know... It's all suspiciously quiet. But WTF, it just means less of a queue at the bar and cheaper rounds 😁
I'll be at Annandale by 11, and I'll be on Jeeves (white honda) just to confuse everyone

Right - trike and trailer tent loaded up.

I'll take a leisurely ride up to Squires for brekky, then on to Beadnell for a couple of days . . . taking in Lindisfarne whilst I'm there . . . .then I should hit Fort Augustus around tea time on Saturday. Just keep your eyes open for a big blue trike being ridden by an ugly bugger with a purple beard.

See you soon.

At least a couple of us will recognise you after the ride back from Cornwall last year - and it would be hard not to notice the trike & trailer lol

All packed and ready to go. Those that are going I'll see you tomorrow, those that ain't I won't :-)
Time for a beer!

95% packed - but off for a beer and some food - finish packing later!
