Use Our Coach
Transport From Glasgow
PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE SPECIFIED WHERE YOU ARE COMING FROM
AND FLIGHT NR
This year we
will be providing optional coach transport from Glasgow to
the Event Centre and back but NOT from Inverness.
To make a booking or add more details, please choose the link to
ENTRY. Details of those who have booked are displayed above
and precise details of the arrangement will be available by 7th
June. Coach managers will try to ensure that connections
are kept with late-running trains, coaches and flights, so long
as they are made aware that people are arriving on them.
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. Contact Rick Houghton at firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01253 795597
COACH: If you live in the Glasgow area and in return
for free transport would be prepared to 'manage' a coach, please
OUR TRANSPORT FROM GLASGOW
Bus Station Coach Departs on Friday 11th June at 20:00 via
If you will be arriving at the airport some hours before the coach
departs, you could take an airport shuttle bus to Glasgow Bus Station,
spend the day in town and then join our coach at Buchanan Bus Station
rather than the airport. The bus station is situated in Killermont
Street near to Glasgow Queen Street Railway Station and is less
than 15 minutes walk from Glasgow Central Railway Station. Please
note that the coach will not be calling at a railway station. The
coach will be standing at Tour Stance nr 27, sited at the
far end of the bus station opposite the main building. You should
be able to locate our two marshals who will be wearing bright yellow
LAMM bibs, a few minutes before the departure time. Also we expect
the coach to be marked with LAMM or Lowe Alpine MM and it is possible
that some information will be provided on the overhead displays.
Please don't make bookings on trains/buses that arrive at Glasgow
later than 19:30.
Airport Coach Departs on Friday 11th June at 20:30
for the Event Centre
Our meeting point will be close to one of
the Airport Information Desks. Look for the desk situated on the
Ground Floor near to Domestic Flight Baggage Reclaim. If you arrive
on an International flight, you will need to proceed to this area
after you have reclaimed your bags. Our marshal will be wearing
a bright yellow LAMM bib and will arrive with the coach from Buchanan
Bus Station - so don't be concerned if our marshal does not appear
until a few minutes before the coach departure time (or later if
the coach is delayed). Our marshal will lead you to where coaches
are required to await incoming flights. Please don't make a booking
on planes that arrive at Glasgow Airport later than 20:00.
Do not confuse Glasgow Airport with Prestwick Airport, which is
1 hour to the SW of Glasgow.
IF YOU EXPECT TO MISS THE 20:00 OR 20:30 DEADLINES
please ring our marshals Andrew Young & William Purnell on
13th June, the transport to Glasgow will leave at 15:00,
calling at Glasgow Airport, Glasgow Central Railway Station and
finally if required at Buchanan Bus Station. It is only intended
to connect with flights leaving Glasgow Airport after 18:00.
Transport will then call at Glasgow railway station and Buchanan
Bus Station. Please don't book onward transport from the centre
of Glasgow before 18:00.
DRIVE - SHARE CAR HIRE
We have a special webpage on
the website devoted to helping those who arrive early on the Friday
by plane to be put in touch with others who might like to share
a hire car rather than wait for our coach transport.
WHAT TO DO
IF YOU MISS A COACH
This is not a
disaster as long as you REMEMBER TO BRING YOUR DRIVER'S LICENCE
& A CREDIT CARD IN YOUR OWN NAME. There are a number of
car hire firms situated at Glasgow airport and the booking offices
are all located near our meeting point on the Ground
Floor near to Domestic Flight Baggage Reclaim.
Weekend rates are reasonable. Look out for other LAMMers in the
same predicament so that you can share a car between two teams.
