Excursions - Week & Weekend
Each year, the Society organises two residential excursions - a week-long excursion in May, and a weekend excursion in the summer.
Long Excursion 20-27 May 2017, Isle of Skye
The 2017 Long Excursion will take place from 20 to 27 May 2017, the destination will be the Isle of Skye, and the leader will be Dr Brian Bell of the University of Glasgow.
Unfortunately it has not proved possible to find accommodation for the whole group in one hotel, but accommodation has been booked in a hotel and guest house close together in Portree and a self catering cottage near the camping and caravan site at Torvaig, about two miles north of Portree.
The itinerary will include as many and as much as possible of the following:
I will be happy to receive expressions of interest now. In due course I will circulate to those who have expressed interest the full details including the itinerary, accommodation and costs, and bookings will be opened in October.
To indicate your interest, please contact the Long Excursion Organiser. My preferred method of communication is by e-mail to email@example.com. If you do not wish to use e-mail, please write to me: Anne Burgess, 21 Woodside Place, Fochabers IV32 7HE.
