We haven't been to Scotland for a few years. Perhaps it's time.

I will look into it.

The hotel in Shipley was an excellent base for this year with nearby establishments for food and evil alcohol.

Without stepping on toes and railroading my suggestion I have had a cursory look at hotels in Inverness and there is a Premier inn which is central , cheap enough with enough rooms but its all depending on setting a suitable date , getting numbers early enough to progress it as i suspect the hotels will not be as easy to book as it was this year in Shipley.

There are a few travel-lodges but are not very central to the town centre.

I will just see what the consensus of opinion is and go with the flow.

Inverness sounds like a great idea until you look at the mileage for us softy southerners.

600 miles from down here. Adds two days to the trip in reality

Come on now fellers, that's 300 miles before breakfast and 300 miles afterwards before lunch - just ask Zebedeee (Dave) ... ;-)

A two centre trip combining a northerly BritSTOC as a stop off for travels to the far north would suit me.

I've looked briefly at the new NC500 http://www.northcoast500.com/home.aspx and chatted with Tom Campbell the originator who was with us at Shipley.

It all looks very interesting but with some local knowledge I'm sure a bespoke Pan BritSTOC type itinerary could be sorted out.

A multi centre trip either starting or finishing with a BritSToc would suit me well and what I am looking into.

A bit like BritSToc 6

I'm sure you did! :D It would be indeed a big day over there as my 400+ mile day took a while (10AM to 7 PM) even running major parts of it on M1 and M6. 600 miles would be really long day if you stayed off the M and A roads for sure.
