    As discussed at the Black Sail meet TBW and I are going up to Glencoe for the weekend of Friday 25th - Sunday 27th May as Paul Heaton is playing at the Clachaig on the Friday night.

    There seemed to be a few folk interested in joining us so we thought we would put it up as a meet.

    We are taking the cushy option by staying at Signal Rock Cottage B&B! Other options are SYHA Glencoe, Glencoe Independent Hostel and the Red Squirrel Campsite.

    We are planning to be in the Clachaig quite early on the Friday to eat and grab a seat in the Boots Bar as it will no doubt be very busy. If you are not bothered about the music no doubt the Bidean Lounge Bar will be a bit quieter!

    Usual routine...if you are interested just add your name...

    Just to say I assume all the above have booked a place at SYHA Glencoe. If not I'd advise doing so asap as it is likely to be quite busy at the end of May even though the late May Bank Holiday has been change to first weekend in June.

    The website says "No" but I rang the hostel and got a bed for both nights, no problem. What AT said though, get in there quick!

    Rang them, bloke told me no need to book just turn up as they will fit me in somewhere even if its on the farm. He said its never been full yet, don't know whether to trust that though if its going to be a busy weekend.

    Don't matter should be a bit warmer by then.. and if theres a shower Im sure I can cope. I will still come then and just turn up at red squirrel. Hopefully they let me in. Looks like most accomodation is full already though

    As Maria says the Red Squirrel is indeed massive and I doubt they've ever turned anyone away. It is fairly basic but the setting is superb!

    I could wear a skirt - but I suppose loads of blokes do north of the borderer do that, so may not have the same affect.
