/ roof over my head this winter! fort william or aviemore
On a budget so whatever you can offer will do! I'm talking couch, floor, cupboard, even just garden i can put a tent in and have access to the house to dry my kit and cook food! Not joking! As I'm on a budget I'd happily do chores and that around the house to sweeten the deal, I'm fairly DIY savvy
and will paint rooms, chop logs or generally whatever you need done on rest/crap condition days.
Do your part for charity and take pity on a skint climber today! (I'm afraid I dont have a registered charity number).
James if no one take pity on you for Scotland you could always work here
To sam, cheers for the offer but I was really looking at just cheap ways of getting lots winter climbing in, your place might be a touch warm!
Phone Nevis Sport in FW and Brighams and ask about accommodation that the staff use. Andy MacDonald is the manager at Nevis Sport and Ben Ankers at Brighams.
They will know what you mean if you ask for a modern day "number 7".
Still open to any other offers!
As I recall at one point we had the rent down to £7 a head per week in No7 ... mind you this was with 7 people living i a 2 bedroom flat. Oh happy days! Mind you, that was over 15 years ago now!
Saor Alba's advice is good - not sure how much of a 'dirtbag' scene there still is in the Fort though.
Theres also the alex mac hut which is 6 pound a night I think.
Don't Glenmore Lodge do a deal with cleaners for accommodation and courses etc?
