Title: Gathering 2009 Suggested PLAN
Posted by: Bachuil
Date: 19 April 2008

Dear All,

I am starting a new thread to try and firm up numbers and plans.

On the basis that the focus is the Gathering I have booked a tent and would suggest that it is essential to obtain a Gathering Passport – see - for details.

All passports include:

Entry to both days of the Highland Games in Holyrood Park 
A place in the clan parade up the Royal Mile
A seat at the Clan Pageant at the castle esplanade.

The prices vary from £88 for Bronze (poor seats and therefore discarded) to £95 for Silver – in the North and South Stands to £110 for Gold the East Stand.  I was a guest at the Tattoo recently and the East Stand is undoubtedly the best.  Given the marginal price difference I suggest we go for Gold.

Fixed Dates

Clan Convention – Chiefs Only
Friday 24th July.

Holyrood Park
Saturday 25th July & Sunday 26th July
The clan will have a tent at the clan village in Holyrood Park.

Clan Parade and Pageant at Castle
Holyrood Park
Saturday 25th July 

I am suggesting that it might be fun to have a night or two on Lismore. During the day it may be possible to do a tour of some of the Clan Lands

There are a few holiday cottages that we could book and one or two B&Bs. see and accomodation  In addition there is the Pier House Hotel at Appin.

So Tentative Dates.

Wednesday 22nd
Northern Tour to Ballachulish, Morvern and Donald’s Grave.
Drinks Reception at Bachuil
Supper at the Heritage Centre

Thursday 23rd July
Southern Tour – Achnacree, Muckairn and Lindsaig.
Caelidh in Lismore Hall.

This would be available as elements

Parade and Pageant Only.  One Nights stay on Sat 25th July and a Passport.

Edinburgh Weekend. Holyrood Park, Parade and Pageant.  Two Nights stay on Fri 24th and Sat 25th July and a Passport.

Lismore Break.
Wed 22nd and Thur 23rd 

At this stage I would welcome feedback on desirability, improvements, suggestions practicalities etc.
