HAB Scottish Borders Trip Update

David Haywood has individually emailed HAB members booked on the Borders trip but in the interest of sharing the information with all members, maybe for future reference and planning a similar trip yourself here is the details for all.

Hi Everyone,

Routes now sorted with brief details and myRoute links below. As the first day is a long one we need to get going earlier than normal. I’m therefore proposing two options:

A. Meet at Ripley Ice Cream from 8.00 for a prompt 8.30am start OR, if it’s easier for you.

B. Meet up with the main group at Hawes (Wensleydale Creamery Café – planned Coffee Stop) at 10.00am (ETA for main group).

NB. If you decide to meet in Hawes, please text me the day before or sooner on 0777 921 4331.

See you Wednesday!




Please start the first day with a full tank.

Trevor Cooper and I plan to share Leader and TEC duties.
