BFTA GP4: SARPA: Westfield Air Rifle Club
Venue is now confirmed as Westfield Air Rifle Club
assuming the location is correct on the map, it's on the google map
Rob, google map link doesn't look correct. when you zoom in on the icon looks as if it's right in the middle of a residential area.
Guys if this is westfield near Glasgow some of the links do point to the wrong place, if it is let me know and I will get them to post the correct one.
if you could that would be great and i'll update the map
Here are directions :-
Coming from Glasgow, pass through milngavie and take the road for Strathblane ( A 81 ).
The reservoir will be on your left.
You will pass some new build houses on the right ( somebody is building new houses )
Then you will pass esporta sports centre on your right( careful ! there is a speed camera here)
Take the second driveway on the right after Esporta. This is signposted Bankell farm campsite.
Carry on down the narrow tarmac road to a junction at some farm buildings and turn left.
Follow this road around the farm buildings to a car park.
We are down the embankment behind the car park.
Here is a link to a map (I hope!) Bankell farm is at the end of the dead end road just showing at the start of Craigmaddie reservoir.
I have been there once for HFT not too hard to find.
I have found a premier inn about a mile away from it, but seeing as I wish to get away from the great unwashed (festival goers , its the IoW Festival then ) that weekend thinking of making it a long one ie thurs to tues.
Can anyone recommend a B&B that would have twin beds. Want to take my Dad up with me and seeing as it will virtually one end of the country to the other daft not to make the most of it.
I used to work near there. I'm afraid I can't recommend any B&B but suggest you look around the Loch Lomond area, there are some excellent spots there. From google maps it looks like a 15-20 mile drive to Westfield
Will be surfing the net this afternoon looking
Has anyone got any satnav long/lat or postcode please for Westfield ARC.
Ok, that's now been updated... see if that works for all
Shooting-the-breeze.com's airgun club map
anyone getting anything vaguely cheap accomodation wise for Saturday night?
I've booked Milngavie Premier Inn £42 for a twin room, which i didn't think was too bad.
Cool, cheers... gone up to £53, but that's a bit better and closer than what i'd found before
i mght be in for this1 just need a room to stay in how much for a single or does anyone want to share a double(im not gay)lol
it was the same for single or double...
There is a b&b just 1/2 a mile down from our ground,
Barloch guest house 0141 956 1432 or
Drumlin guest house 0141 956 1596 or
Best foot forward 0141 956 3046 or
Adam b 0141 584 9400
this last one must be just next to barloch so about the same distance to the club ground and a 5 min. walk into Milngavie for shops,pubs and restuarants.
If you want any more info pm me or phone on 0141 943 1068.
Hope this helps.
