I called the Clova Hotel yesterday and asked how late they serve food on a Sunday night, it’s until 8:00 p.m. from Sun - Thurs. and 9:00 on Fri/Sat. Now, that’s probably OK for most people but I have arrived late there before having done some hills on the way and planned on food to no avail. I do carry an extra meal with me for these sorts of things so it wasn’t a real issue.
If there is a sufficient showing of challengers for the Sunday and Monday nights, which would be the most popular days I would think, they said they’d consider having the chef stay an hour longer.
I'll be there on the Monday too and plan to eat there. I've also arranged to send a food parcel there.
Where are you going to camp? I did a recce there last week and the place is festooned with No Camping signs so I'm hoping to pitch a little way up the Loch Brandy path that I didn't recce. The hotel confirmed absolutely no camping in the vicinity of the hotel despite there beibg a nice grassy picnic area with toilets... Where are others camping?
