    Right guys, I have been looking at various places for us to base this years McBASH at and there are a few likely suspects BUT I need to know what sort of budget your limit would be per night on B&B basis for those planning to come (1st to 4th Sept)?

    Obviously the more you pay the better the hotel (hopefully!) but before I start to make any provisional bookings (coz I'll need to reserve them fairly soon because some of the hotels I'd looked at are fully booked already!) I want to make sure the cost isn't prohibitive.

    Also there are a couple of nice hotels but they only have 12 rooms, I think we only used 12 last year but want to get an idea if thats enough or if we should go somewhere with a few more rooms.

    I'd therefore be grateful if you can drop me a PM or email (russ(at)russquinlan.co.uk) and let me know what sort of budget you'd be happy to pay for the 3 nights (per room per night)

    And by the way, this is open to anyone on here whether a BIRD Member or not, there are a lot of 'guests' peruse these 'ere pages so if you want to get more involved, come on down) or up, depending on where you live !

    The Bird should be ready for it I hope, it's down to the frame total frame up resto wheels, front and rear sub frames are at the powder coaters forks and shock are heading to Brook suspension next week jaws has my order for a rad etc David silver will get my order for new OEM discs and pads the Moro seat is going to get recovered and gel pad fitted that just leaves a complete paint job to get done last. So book me in@tu* £100 a night?? I think it's the same weekend as Thunder in the Glenn Hardly Dangerous Bash in Aviemore 3000 bikes last year.

    OK an update !

    This one should please John !!

    OK guys after a LOT of emails and phone calls, looks like we have a base for 2017 !

    At the moment the ONLY hotel to give me any sort of feedback at a decent rate in the Conon Bridge Hotel which is up near the Black Isle (brewery, etc!) and for an inclusive rate of ?48 per person per night and that includes an evening meal.

    I know its a bit further North than I was trying to get, but this will open up roads to Ullapool and along part of the NC500 up along the coast.
    There are 12 rooms but if we need more there are a couple of B&B next door that they will be able to use and anyone staying there is on the same deal, so all meals in the Hotel.
    Be grateful of some feedback so I can place a deposit toot sweet so they will keep it for us. Basically we will be taking the hotel over for the weekend !!
    I don't want any dosh from anyone yet so don't panic !

    Anyone coming from down south will also have a great blast up the A9 to get there !

    Come on Robbo you know it makes sense, PLUS no ferry required although you will need some dosh to get over the border!

    PLUS where would a McBASH be without you and Yvo !!

    So far we have 7 definite rooms booked already !

    I have reserved all 12 and if we need B&B backup they will organise but would need to know so they can book if required.
