“SOTA on Tour” heads north of the border at the end of the month.
I have been using a combination of youth hostels, and cheap rooms (usually in private homes) from the Theatre Digs List for my accommodation needs on my travels. However, for the upcoming Scottish dates, there is significantly less options of both hostels and theatre digs in the areas I’m going to be.
My itinerary is based on the gigs booked in (obviously), and the summits I’m allowed to do in Jimmy M0HGY’s absence (ie ones he’s already done). I did try to persuade him to join me on this leg of the tour to increase the options, but the logistics didn’t really work out.
So basically, I’m looking for recommendations for cheap (ideally £20 or less) beds for the night on the following dates and areas. Any local knowledge from GM / NE England?
30th October 2018: Middlesbrough / Northumberland
31st October 2018: Ayr
1st November 2018: Glenrothes (or down towards Edinburgh)
2nd November 2018: Peebles / Kirk Yetholm area
3rd November 2018: Glasgow or anywhere down to Penrith
Potentially the four nights in Scotland could be at one central location. I just really want to keep my SOTA activating ticking along while I’m away! Any tips/advice greatly appreciated.
