Title: Wet West Paddle fest Scotland for a week
Post by: Tom Rob :D on April 10, 2014, 12:45:09 PM
This is the Scottish paddle fest in Fort William area

 The dates are 13-14 September but I was thinking that Scotland is actually a week trip.

Just a little clip of last years.

Accommodation is quite easy to find up there as there is quite a lot of youth hostels.
I stayed in one for a week in March and it was quite nice and reasonably priced at £100 a week.

I know that a few people from Ringwood are keen on going to do this as well as I have spoken to Jake Deakin about it.

I'm quite keen on going if anyone else is as well?

I have stayed at Calluna twice when paddling in Scotland. Once with members of Salisbury CC. It was cheap, clean, easy walking to the town centre and has a superb drying room! http://www.fortwilliamholiday.co.uk/
