    Breakfast in the bunkhouse?

    What's the Hampden ?
    I had assumed that it would be the usual bunkhouse routine with some self catering facilities.
    Their confirmation e-mail says “bed and breakfast.”
    Breakfast in the hotel was superb, but came at a cost.
    Should I just bring some Oysters.

    I went next door and had some fresh carrots and spring vegetables off Rab's carpet

    I think you'll find that the "breakfast" will set you back an additional £12.50. I didn't explore the facilities for making yer own TBH. A bacon roll where we met you and Kathleen did the bizz.

    That's what I though but the e-mail says £20 pppn Bed and Breakfast.
    I've e-mailed them back but it will probably take a few days for them to respond and as its quite soon I wanted to know now.
    Probably a typo, is there cooking facilities?

    Let me know what the reply says cos the email I've got with the original booking details is £15pppn for B/H (same as this year). Wid be great if they'll do us a brekkie for an additional fiver but somehow I think it must be a typo.

    We were quoted 15 quid a night (each) and I asked about a kitchen, nothing there, shame
    She said you can bring a kettle but not insured for cooking
    So may as well bring the oysters

    Chippy open early?

    Or a wee stove in the carpark would do the job given the perfect weather, only needs to fry some bacon

    Dear Ashley.


    Further to our conversation I can confirm that a clubhouse single room with shared bathroom facilities has been booked for you on the nights of 4, 5 and 6 June 2010. The bed and breakfast rate will be £18 per night.



    We look forward to seeing you again next year and wish you a safe journey to Ullapool when the time comes.

    PS,
    Alison says hi



    Yours sincerely

    By the way looks like I will be working for GOTC next year as I go back on the 3rd June.

    Don't worry about breakfasts as the mountaineering/outdoor shop about 25 yeards down the road has a cafe above that does all day breakfasts for £5-95 with tea or coffee and they are great

    A reply from the ceilidhplace.

    Apologies for that, it is room only at £15 per person, I believe Effie our manager agreed a group rate for you. A cooked 'hotel' breakfast as you had before with all the trimmings can be booked the night before for 12.50 each (so we can have a table ready) and charged to your room.Otherwise a cafe breakfast is available from 9am
    I was gettin confused (yea, again ) with the various rates being quoted. The group rate seems to clarify things.
    Breakfast options seem to be plentyfull
    Glad thats sorted, I can relax now
