Mar 20 - 25 Scottish Hotel Meet - The venue for 2016 is The Royal Hotel in Oban, booked from 20th March for 5 nights. The hotel stands in the heart of Oban, near to the harbour and local attractions. Known as the Gateway to the Isles, Oban is the ideal place to stay to explore the Isle of Seil, and the Isles of Mull and Iona. Ben Cruachan is just one of the many mountains nearby and of course Fort William and Glen Coe are only just up the road. So there will be lots to do and see. The price is £34 per night per person for dinner bed and breakfast. If you would like to come along please
get in touch with Clare
