Due to being the most popular venue so far of people that stated a preference, Blackwater Hostel and Campsite at Kinlochleven has been selected as the destination for this meet.
The Hostel has been provisionally booked or held for us as sole occupancy use for the meet, at no cost for the next 2 weeks. This is to allow an audit of numbers who would like to stay at the hostel to ensure cost effectiveness. The 2 week grace period started on the 2nd July and when it expires, a credit card transaction to secure the sole use occupation will have to be made. The booking will be for the hostel only so campers will have to book through normal channels (see website).
The hostel details can be found on the attached link, but sleeps a maximum of 40 in rooms containing various numbers of bunks. The minimum sole occupancy is advertised as 30. The price of booking the hostel is £400 per night which equates to £10 pppn if full. I understand an arrangement between residents will be made at a later time to establish cooking and catering arrangements on a per person per day contribution. I suspect the sole use booking might be for 3 nights, Fri 24, Sat 25 and Sun 26 Oct.
