Movember - a flying start!

The candles within the pumpkins are extinguished and the dried blood has been washed from our faces. Now it’s the morning after and you’re no doubt collecting your bearings after another great Saturday night and of course the closing of Octoberfest.

The Clachaig Team on Saturday night - a grim bunch

It’s been a really good few weeks full of high spirits and entertainment and we hope you’ve enjoyed sampling our widely caught range of real ales, and kept a record of which ones you had, which ones you missed and which ones you’re determined to grab hold of next time.

For us it’s the time of year now to bring out the clothes and chemicals located in one of the cupboards somewhere right next to the elbow grease and get to work on putting a new shine on our surroundings, ready for the extravaganza that is Christmas and Hogmanay.

In case you’ve forgotten, there is a very special HogRoast evening taking place on 14th December, which will be admission via ticket so I’ll advise you to locate one as soon as possible. And then of course Hogmanay weekend is looking to be one for the history books, especially with Kinky Karma booked for the big night of the 31st.

 The Captain

A big thanks from the captain of our Movember team, Stuart Price, too. The raffle we held last night in aid of men’s health raised a total of £150 to the cause. Added to what we’ve raised so far, and we’re currently on a £513 total already. Which is an amazing amount for four days, and terrifically humbling. If you’d like to join our team over then we’re giving away a Henri Lloyd stow bag for whoever raises the most.

Once again, thank you for your visit during Octoberfest and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Glen as soon as possible!
