We are very grateful for the large turnout of members and friends who took part in the Club’s inaugural trip to Applecross on Sat 2nd August. The weather was mainly fair and the hoods stayed mainly down for the whole trip and it proved very enjoyable and gave the members a chance to get to know each other. We were very sorry that Michael McHardy had to call off at the last moment with a raging tooth abscess that necessitated a visit to hospital and he returned home late afternoon—hope you recover well soon Mike!
Applecross Inn treated us well and although we arrived early even after a stop at Lochcarron they took our orders promptly and gave us a hearty lunch and later in the day Gil received a text message from them saying how much they enjoyed our visit and hoped we would return again.
The party then left for Shieldaig on the coastal scenic route and we had a stopover to take some photos of the party with a stunning backdrop of wonderful coastal scenery—I am afraid my camera misbehaved and pictures are blurred so please members if you have some good images would you please e-mail them to us (HERE) so that they can feature on our club website.
Gil and I took up the rear on the trail to Shieldaig and I had an elderly moment at the T junction when I turned right instead of left into Shieldaig thinking I was missing out the village and going straight to Kinlochewe when in fact we were on the main road back to Lochcarron! Anyone willing to take on the navigator’s role on future trips? However we did meet and stop to briefly chat to John Parker who had left the main party at Achnasheen to return to his home at Achintraid, Kishorn. It was very good of him to travel to Beauly necessitating a very early start to travel with the Club in his stunning Lotus Evora.
I have some orders confirmed from members from the catalogue but we would be grateful if you would scan the items for sale on the website and indicate size and colour required and make your orders in this coming week so we can make a bulk order.
Roll on the next trip.
Gill and James

We are pleased to report that the Club’s Bank Account has now been set up and we will be ready to receive the annual subscriptions. However since we are unlikely to meet as a group for some time we think it best for you to start sending in your application forms and cheques from the 1st July and we will treat these as lasting for 14 months and will expect the next subscriptions to be due on 1st Sept 2021.
If there are some who would like to pay their subscriptions by Bankers Order let us know and we will supply you with our Bank’s Sort Code and A/C number for you to process.
Many thanks in anticipation.
