Subject: Scottish Mudgather Octoberish 2007?
From: John MacKenzie
Date: 07 Feb 07 - 12:01 PM

Who would be interested in coming up to the highlands for a wee Mudgather at the back end of this year?

It would hopefully be held in a wee hotel between Lairg and Bonar Bridge, there is a station close by, and also a fabulous Youth Hostel called Carbisdale Castle. It's a 60 mile drive from Inverness Airport.

I was thinking in terms of late October [after the Getaway] or early November, at a time where it wouldn't clash with any festival weekends.

Giok

It's better to avoid English school holidays as that makes transport much more crowded and difficult. September would be better (early in the month would also let people doing long trips from overseas combine it with a visit to Whitby FF and/or the Edinburgh Festival).

Chorus:
The midgies, the midgies, I'm no gonna kid yiz,
The midgies is really the limit,
With teeth like piranhas they drive you bananas,
If you let them get under your semmit.

The Lord put the Garden of Eden on Earth,
And it's north of the Tweed we believe.
Aye, Scotland's the place
And the whole human race started off with McAdam and Eve.
In 6 days or under, God finished this wonder
Except for the Forth and Tay bridges
Then always a bloke for a practical joke
He made Scotland the home of the midges.

Chorus

Back in 1314, the proud Edward was keen
To take Scotland into his care,
But he made a U-turn when he reached Bannockburn
Just a few weeks before Glasgow Fair.
Oh the midges let loose by King Robert the Bruce
Straight into the English got tore
So they ran off in tears and for 600 years
They've been blocking the A74

Chorus

Now never forget, when the sun's going to set
And the midges arise on Loch Eck
Like the vampires you see played by Christopher Lee
They will give you a pain in the neck.
You can smack them and whack them
In vain you'll attack them,
For they know every move that you make.
If ye manage to kill yin another half million are ready to come to the wake.

Well it's a problem, and the main guiding factor is the slowing down of the Festival scene in England, where most attendees would be coming from. There seems to be festival or six almost every weekend of the year from Easter right through. There is a bank holiday weekend in September in Scotland and Banbury is early October, then I go to America in early November. we will get less midgies, and better accommodation rates then too.
I have to sit down and talk to the guy who owns the hotel, as that's our guiding factor.

Right folks I have spoken to Graham the hotel owner and he is very enthusiastic. He's a folkie himself, and a regular Sidmouth attendee.
He has said rooms in the hotel would be £25 per night B&B, he also has 3 self catering units, with more becoming available as he gets them renovated, they would be cheaper than the hotel rate, but no figure available at the moment. there is also as I said Carbisdale Castle Youth Hostel across the river, and there are a few B&Bs not too far away.
Wild camping is available, both for tents and caravans, or even motor homes!
Banbury is the weekend of the 13th October, so the weekends of either the 20th, or 27th October have been provisionally reserved.
I now need to know who is interested, and which weekend they prefer. I will go with the majority choice, so I apologise in advance if we choose the one you don't want. Can't please all of the people all of the time!

I have 28 interested parties and 7 votes for each date? Half term appears to be the week in between the two dates.
I'm quite happy for the children to come, but I will need to know who, how, when and why, they will be organised/watched over.
I don't think they'd be allowed in the bar area, but there is the rest of the hotel, albeit a small hotel.
Found this...
"In Scotland, young people of 14 years of age or older can be in a bar during the permitted opening hours provided that they do not drink alcohol. Where the licensed premises hold a children's certificate, then a child under 14 may be allowed in for the purpose of eating a meal. However, children must be accompanied by someone over 18 years old and may only be present between the hours of 11.00 and 20.00."
It is also worth remembering for the smokers amongst you, that smoking is not allowed in Scottish pubs, although it will be the same for England by then too!

Carole and Andrew, I don't know how much it will cost you to get to Luton or Gatwick, but EasyJet has some really cheap flights to Inverness if booked early enough, like about £12 each way.

Thanks for reminding us when our festival is Giok!
Your planning for the gather is around the time of Dougie MacLean's Perthshire Amber festival which Dary and I went to for the first time last year in our efforts to recover. It was absolutely fab and we have already decided to go again this year. Dates for this year are not yet on his website but to get some idea of what it is about go into www.perthshireamber.com Fitting in a mudgather (provided it is not too far away) at the time would be absolutely great. We will watch the postings with interest. By the way, most of the headliners for Banbury are now booked and up on the website www.banburyfolkfestival.co.uk

Right, rather than drag it out and twist people's arms for more votes, we will go with the 20th weekend as it is in the lead now, and it suits me better as I will be going to the Getaway immediately after the next weekend.
I now need to know who is coming for that weekend.
Sorry for those who will be inconvenienced, but I was never going to please everybody.

Hotel website and details so that you can make your own bookings.
This is only about 1 mile from the hotel.
7 Miles away
9 Miles away
8 Miles away
8 Miles
In my village again about 8 miles away.
You will need to talk to the hostel yourselves, and do remember that it was rare to get a late pass at most of the hostels I used to go to, but things may have changed since then.
Beware too that Sutherland is an enormous county, so even if it says Sutherland it could be 90 miles away, so check your maps if booking self catering.

Usually the format is a 'jump in' session, and/or a round the room rota. Might do what we did at Portaferry last week, and run Saturday night like a Folk Club, with people doing 'spots'.
I have vague dreams of getting a ceilidh band sorted out, and I may have a caller, but don't know about the space or inclination for dancing. Don't do it myself, they told me when I got my hips sorted out I'd be able to Morris dance, but thank god it hasn't happened yet!

I spoke to Graham the landlord this afternoon, and he has 3 people confirmed so far. It would be nice if we could get a few more confirmed,it is only a small hotel, and I'm sure we can get enough of us to fill it. That way we can play till the early hours, with no chance of disturbing some tweed suited visiting angler.
Graham is happy for us to do this, but only if we can provide enough people for him to turn a way non Folkie Guests. Also regarding that point, although this is a MudClan Gathering, there is no reason why non-mudactters can't attend as long as they are folk orientated they're welcome.
So enough bookings means that we get the place to ourselves, and Graham will refuse other bookings.
Go to it chaps, and chappesses!

Bar might be a bit small for us all to be in there at once in it's present form, although Graham says he is extending it in due course.
As I said above, the Saturday night will be a sort of concert format with people putting their names down for a spot, and then I will run it like a folk club, floor spots type format. It will be held in the function room with amplification if required.
I wonder how many people would be interested in going on a distillery tour on the Saturday. If enough were I would arrange for the tour to happen. I suggest Dalmore, near Alness, as it's a nice friendly wee place, and about the nearest one to the venue.

MMario has donated one of his wonderful shawls to help us raise funds at this Mudcat McGathering.
I thought that we'd raffle it separately, in addition to the normal raffle at the event. This will give other people the chance to buy a ticket and participate even if they can't make the gathering.
My not very good photo's of said shawl are here Contact me if you want tickets, £1 each is fair I think.
A big vote of thanks to Leo for this donation.

Hostel from £15.00 per night (as above)I've still got to find out a) how far away from the hotel it is and b) Can we get late passes. IIs anyone else considering staying there?)Flights are from £50.00 return. The sooner you book the better as they steadily rise as the date gets nearer. Liz, with Limpet, it may be cheaper to buy a family railcard and get an apex fare. It was £30.00 return to Glasgow on certain trains.

Spoons are great instruments. Not only can you play them rhythmically to provide counterpoint and accompaniament, but they're useful if someone drops your change into your beer, or if anyone brings cake or soup. You just need to remember to lick 'em clean after. Try eating soup with a melodeon!

Ah! That would be a difficulty, my apologies, I was unaware of that.
Reading back through the posts I think it would be very expensive to hire a mini bus to go all the way to Invershin (if that was what was intended), not too bad just to take folks to Inverness station though.
I'm almost sure there is a regular bus service from the airport into town. Then throw yourselves on the mercies of Scotrail!

There's no problem with dogs as long as they are well behaved. Monty sits on his own rug next to the window and watches the world go by, or uses his collie stare, the one that scares sheep, to get people to give him food. He's really friendly, and fat and cuddly.

Must say I'm kinda in your boat Drumshanty. Although I'd still be flying to Invershin as I live in London!

However, last year on my 40th birthday I decided enough was enough, I was fed up of camping in a tent that you had to 're-birth' yourself to get out of (and get dressed lying down in) and of basically not going to enough fests and gathers due to lack of transport.

I've scored a tent I can stand up in (and the foot print isn't much bigger than my old tent) and I've got as far as passing my theory test. Unfortunately, as I haven't got access to a car to practice in, I need more lessons and they're having to happen as and when I get the money. But still, shouldn't be too long now as my instructor is making iencouraging noises about booking tests and my mother has promised that I can borrow her car once I get my full license. So Next year promises to be fun!!!

My poor husband will become a folk widower....

or
I cannot come at all cause I don't have a car at the moment and don't know how to reach it with public transport

I have a car, can come up by myself and stay at the hostel...

Enjoy yourselves! I've tried, but I won't be able to get away from work long enough in order to take part. Would have been nice to see some familiar faces and get to know some new ones. Maybe next year ... Particular good wishes to Giok and Liz, Bron, and Doug.

Great news. look forward to meeting up at last.
Not long now folks, remember there is still plenty space available at the Carbisdale Castle Youth hostel 10 minutes walk away. This alone is worth the trip, it's a spectacular place.

So now we have

Llanfair + Monty
LtS + Manitas + Limpit
MeganL + Dauvitt
Skarpi + Gunna, and possibly Rosa and her husband too.
Jim Lad + Brenda
Lady P
Weerover [possible]
Murray MacLeod + Fine Singer
Jack Campin + Marion
Doug Chadwick
Effsee
Catherine Jayne + Paul + Sprog [on west coast ;)]
Lurking Catter + Kitten
Sabine

Any additions or subtractions?

Just over a month to go, so I have booked my train tickets. I now have to work out how many and what type of instruments I can safely lug between the 4 trains I have to take. If all goes to plan, I shouldn't be in too much of a rush but if there are any delays, well….. I might have to limit clothes to a spare shirt and a few changes of underwear.

I will donate a double CD       "Tuesday Night @ the Tap & Spile"       for the raffle.

- 38 tracks of covers, original songs and poetry recorded by the Grimsby Tappites who attend the regular open mic/acoustic nights. It features several Mudcat members such as Tim the Twangler, Rockhen and myself as well as a number of Mudcat guests

Those who are not lucky enough to win it could buy the CD's at £5 each (£10 the pair). All profits are donated to the National Children's Home (Grimsby) and Viking FM's "For the Kids" charity. For each double set sold (as a set) during the weekend, I will donate a further 50p to Mudcat.

If anyone is interested in purchasing the CD's, either P.M. me or let me know in this thread.

A friend of mine is hoping to come, too. She's been in touch with Graham, and she's first reserve if anyone drops out, accommodation-wise.

I'll be travelling overnight on the train from Crewe to inverness, then getting the connection to Invershin, arriving lunchtime Friday. Anyone else on that train?

D'you think it might be an idea to start a Scottish Mudgather Two, this one's getting a bit long.

hi folks,

just had a look at the hostel page again and was also looking at that hill to climb up after the session....

is there no other possibility of accommodation in that area as the hotel (fully booked) and the hostel (no, i refuse to mountain-climbing after several pints...).

we could put up a tent but i must admit... i am not too keen to do this as well...

any ideas?

cheers
