Just thought I would add an example accommodation as below using same dates as the flights & van hire. Its probable that we would be split into 2 or more B&Bs depending on numbers. This is for http://dunborrodale.co.uk/

Hi All, I got an email from Easy Jet claiming their sales are now on! while the out going flight has come down a couple of quid the ret has gone up by £20!! how's that a sale!
Looking at accommodation there is a hotel in the same are that's good reviews on Trip Advisor and the prices are similar to the B&B https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Rev ... tland.html Anyways we have made provisional bookings.

Hi Frank and rest of interested parties. Sorry have been quiet on here. Our division at work was closed and we were all made redundant as of 31 Dec. However, have a new job starting next week so will need to negotiate holiday dates with them. Would still love to go but cannot confirm any dates until I start. If others want to continue booking then please dont let me stop you!

Hi Paul sorry to hear about the redundancy (hope they compensated you well!) Glad to hear you have another job you are able to walk into :D Let's hope they are open to honouring your dates!

Hi All, I received a book for Christmas the photographer's guide to Scotland (E. Bowness) very handy :D Using this and Google I have put together a draft schedule for comment, please feel free to do so. I have created it in Google sheets so you will need the link below. Sorry the date is US format I'll get round to sorting it at some point. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... R4bUqxEBIA

Hi Frank and rest. My new holiday entitlement only runs to August meaning I dont get a full years worth and after family commitments I can only use 2 working days for Skye. Therefore Im happy to go from Saturday 22nd Feb to Tuesday 25th Feb. I realise this may mess up peoples plans so understand if others want to stick with original dates (24-28 Feb) or another time entirely. Will be at club tomorrow to discuss.

Hi Paul and others, following our discussion on Weds, I have a commitment on the 22nd so can't go out on that date, I looked at flying up on the Sunday to join you for the 3 days but they don't have an early morning flight so we wouldn't get there until 5pm :(
So I'm sticking with the original dates 24th - 28th, we will join you on the Monday, as you said this will then give us 2 vehicles (I will be driving) and therefore more choice of where we go on the island.
