Winter Long Weekend in Scotland – Knoydart
Leaving the evening of Thursday 1st March on the overnight Sleeper, returning on the overnight sleeper evening of Tuesday 6th March (arriving London 7.47am Wednesday 7th March)
We have one, possibly two spaces on this trip (as a single room could be used as a double). We are staying at Ivy cottage, which is in Inverie (the only settlement on Knoydart).
The journey to get here is overnight sleeper to Fort William (leaving Euston at 9.15pm), train to Mallaig, and short ferry hop to Inverie, arriving at our accommodation mid afternoon on the Friday.
After settling in, there will then be three full days to enjoy the mountains, valleys and coastline of this wonderful wilderness area (hopefully snow covered), plus a day to do a walk back on the mainland, before the sleeper back to Euston, which leaves 7.50pm. I have always managed to get to work by 10am on the morning of return, if that is your need. Approximate cost per person is £200 travel plus about £60 accommodation for the four nights (if 8 people go, 7 already signed up). The overnight train would be £100 if you don’t want a sleeper berth.
Let me know if you are interested, and to check availability. You will need to book the sleeper yourself and pay a £20 deposit to the club for the accommodation
