Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

Indeed, Phil. Ruth and I have booked a cottage near Cockermouth for the preceding week. It's a part of the Lake District we don't know so it'll be good to explore.

I don't have the software, never mind the skill, to do a logo for the event. I've had a go and it's not too bad but not, I think, good enough to be printed on a T-shirt. Anyone have the graphical knowhow to make a decent fist of this?

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

We visited Caerlaverock Castle last year. It's unusual because it's triangular, done to fit the available ground but the only three-sided castle in the UK. There's a really good cafe there, too. We also went to New Abbey, just across the estuary but 20 miles by road, and visited the water mill and (surprise!) ruins of Dulce Carde or Sweet Heart Abbey there. We found another brilliant cafe right by the abbey.

Is it any wonder I'm the shape I am when I judge attractions by the quality of the refreshment rooms!?!

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

I don't think it will happen in July but the weather can be very variable up there. When Ruth and I went off towards Dumfries, this time last year, we had a bright but cool day and saw no rain until we were about five miles from Moffat. Another group from the BMW Club, staying in the same hotel as we did, went the opposite direction and had a very bad time of it. The hail came down suddenly and very heavily and they had to stop and find shelter because the bikes were slipping and sliding on the balls of ice.

When it comes to the weather in Scotland, expect the unexpected!

Motorcycle Scotland's website has some suggested runs for the area:

http://www.motorcyclescotland.com/ta...ycle-route.asp is a full day's ride

http://www.motorcyclescotland.com/ga...ycle-route.asp is basically the first half of the above route.

In the other direction: http://www.motorcyclescotland.com/bo...ycle-route.asp

And if you're interested in Scotland's national poet: http://www.motorcyclescotland.com/ro...ycle-route.asp

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

I've just seen another possible route in the latest Ride magazine - from Moffat A708, A72 & A701. Apparently it can be done in less than a day, and parts of it are described as "involving and challenging without being too technical" (whatever that means.......). Also says "quiet roads & magnificent scenery". Worth considering, perhaps?

The article also mentions the Buccleuch Hotel in glowing terms.

Just had a look looks good and can certainly vouch for the hotel great food and the owners are second to none for hospitality.

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

Hi all,

Afraid Mary and I are going to have to cancel this year - since booking, we have been asked to help run a summer school activity programme so the trip to Scotland will have to wait another year!!

Hope you all have a great time!

Chris

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

I have had a call from the hotel this morning with disturbing news. They had block-booked the hotel for us for the Treffen weekend but only Ruth and I and one other have reserved rooms. You MUST book today or tomorrow or the block will be taken off on Thursday and the rooms let elsewhere.

You will NOT be able to turn up on the day without a prior reservation with the hotel.

Keith

EDIT There had been mistake by the hotel and the three rooms booked by Phil Hollick hadn't been counted but Hayley also told me that it is Moffat's Gala Weekend and they would expect all the hotels to be full.

Don't delay! Book today!

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

Bit thin on the ground this year at the Lt treffen in Moffat infact at first there was only a Goldwing. The first ride out was to have a tour around some of the loch's on a route that Dave and Clint recommended who own the hotel. The roads were empty up here as you can see from the photo's. Dave and Jackie turned up on Friday after a long ride down from Shetland to complete the line up for this year. There was a gala on Saturday in the town so we all stayed here for the day and had a cracking time pipe bands highland dancing, this evening there is a torch light procession and massive bonfire and fireworks. I will post some more photo's when I get back.

Re: LT Treffen 2013 - Moffat, Scotland

Sincere apologies for my non-appearance but I had a bad fall - about 5ft off a steep flight of steps onto a mix of flagstones and cobbles - last Thursday and had to go to hospital. There are no broken bones but I have damaged some muscles and have severe bruising that's made every movement. including breathing, very painful, even with the strong pain-killers and anti-inflammatory tablets I've been prescribed. It's taken me two days to get home from the Lake District and it was lucky we could stay with one of our daughters last night. Today's been a real pig, with the temperature reaching 32C as we neared home.

I'm glad the few who did manage to get to Moffat are enjoying themselves and I really wish we could have been there.

Keith

Vielen dank, beiden. I am getting better all the time but I'm really glad I didn't risk going to Moffat as the tablets are make me very drowsy and I keep falling asleep!

I'm very jealous, Phil. I would have loved to have been there but circumstances dictated otherwise.
