    The 5th 'The Gathering' in Scotland enjoys great weather!

    Hard to believe that Dunoon on May Bank Holiday was one of the warmest locations in Britain and enjoyed by maximum capacity guests, despite some sun burn!

    BBC Scotland Television and Radio gave excellent coverage of the event which for the first time offered a three night extension. This proved popular with first timers and several who had to journey some distance to attend. Visiting guests came from Germany, Belgium, Ireland as well as the British Isles, including the Scottish Hebridies and Skye.

    The Casino Night proved a great success, especially for one lady staking all her 100 'Buff pounds' on one number! Extending our naturist swim at the local pool to one and a half hours also proved popular with 87 attending! But there can be no doubt that the weather won the day enabling guests to walk freely in the glens and forests of Argyll, with the warmest day enjoyed at a Community Forest followed by an afternoons sunbathing on the Argyll Secret Coast. No less than five boat trips were booked through the Kyles of Bute this year, an all time record.

    And talking of records, guests raised a staggering £300 for the local hospice, £75 for the Community Forest AND £50 for Wateraid UK!

    There is no doubt about it that Gatherers this year enjoyed a very special event, just like every other year!

    Next years Gathering will be from 4th May to 7th May, and once again there will be the opportunity to book a three night extension until 10th May 2018.

    Haste Ye Back!......and May the Fourth be with you!
