USE OUR TRANSPORT TO THE EVENT

View list of Coach Bookings here and check that your details are correct

Please read & print these FINAL DETAILS and then use the online booking button at the bottom.

We are organising optional transport on Friday evening, which will carry you directly to the Event Centre with the option to return on Sunday. Complete the online booking form by 12th JUNE LATEST so that we can schedule the coaches to meet your requirements. Details of those who have booked are displayed immediately on the website. Please check that this information is accurate. If there are any changes or you have decided not to use the transport, please inform us at martin@lamm.co.uk. to avoid us waiting for someone who isn't going to turn up. Our Coach Manager, Mick Garratt will try to ensure that connections are kept with late-running trains, coaches and flights, so long as we are made aware that people are arriving on them. In case of emergency, Mick's mobile number is 07802 671472. This year we can reassure you that the LAMM will not be taking place on an island!

There will be a walk of about 400M from where the transport drops you off to the Event Centre. You are recommended to bring two tents and leave your basecamp tent erected during the weekend.

FROM INVERNESS FRIDAY 16TH JUNE
There will be one special coach which will meet flights arriving until 17:00. Look out for Mick who will be wearing a yellow LAMM bib. The coach will leave Inverness airport at 17:20 and proceed to Inverness Railway Station, leaving there at 17:50.

We notice that a few of you have booked transport that arrives at Inverness after the coach has left. Please contact martin@lamm.co.uk by Monday 12th June so that we can make alternative arrangements for you.

Our transport will leave the Event Centre on Sunday for Inverness at 15:00. If you are using our transport, please do not book flights leaving Inverness Airport on Sunday.

FLY DRIVE: The deals available at the moment from the budget airlines are excellent. We have a special page on the website devoted to helping those who arrive on the Friday by plane to be put in touch with others who might like to share a hire car to the venue. Useful online booking websites include: www4.flybe.com  www.flybmi.com www.ryanair.co.uk www.britishairways.com  www.easyjet.com

HOT TIP - CARRY YOUR PACKED EVENT SACKS AS HAND LUGGAGE. A few years ago, Sabena Airline mislaid the hold luggage of a pair from Holland. They turned up at the event without any kit and were unable to participate - a disaster for them and a lesson to be learned. Even on domestic flights you should now carry your passport or some other form of photo identification.

GAS CANISTERS: You cannot carry these canisters on an aircraft. Please contact Compass Point so that they can bring the right type of gas canister to the event for you. See details of the shop below.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU MISS A COACH
This is not a disaster as long as you REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENCE AND A CREDIT CARD! There are a number of car hire firms situated at Inverness airports, within a short walk of the terminal building. Weekend rates are reasonable and you should expect to pay an all-inclusive price of about £70 per economy car for 48 hours from Friday evening -> Sunday afternoon. Check the damage excess when you hire a car. Look out for other LAMMers in the same predicament so that you can share a car between two teams.
