This walking-hostelling trip will be from Dec 27th-Dec 31st.   We will stay 4 nights in the heart of Shropshire at Wilderhope YHA - an Elizabethan Grade I listed building, recently re-furbished.  Alternatively, you can make your own arrangements for accommodation. We'll be walking around the Wenlock Edge/National Trust area of Shropshire.  There'll be a variety of daily walks led by Don/other walk leaders.  We'll visit some pub/restaurants and you could take a rest day to explore Shrewsbury-the local area.  Cost per night is approx £20.00 and we'll be staying in rooms of about 4-5 for privacy and comfort (unless you specify otherwise).  Private rooms are limited.   Please contact Gill if you want to book a place - and send a £50.00 deposit to Colin (see email from Colin). We will have a planning meeting nearer the time to organise car-sharing and food/catering.

Tour of Scottish Highlands & Islands
Don 01582 601852
This three week tour from Sat 12 May - Sun 3 June, will explore the North-West Coast of Scotland, and the islands of Skye, Harris and Lewis. Accommodation will be in hostels and bunkhouses, and transport will be by car (car sharing will be available). The tour starts in Portree and North Skye (Trotternish) and then goes to the Outer Hebrides, with stops at Tarbet and Stornaway, returning from there to the mainland at Ullapool. The tour then works north through Assynt to the most north-westerly point on the Scottish mainland at Cape Wrath, before heading homewards, with two nights in Inverness, and a stop at Kirk Yelton on the English border. If you can't spare (or afford) three weeks you can always come for part of the tour - Ullapool could be a good place to join or leave. Please contact Don soon if you want to join the trip.
