Seren, BR release 'super saver' tickets 3 months before the date of travel.  You need to be quick but they are a LOT cheaper.  It cost Toucs and I about £60 return each last year.

Eek, not been on in a while, I've got flights booked from Bristol to Inverness, Friday to Monday just under 100. I've also got a b&b booked in Inverness, quite central but can't remember which one, info is in my work email. Was quite budget though 180 for a twin, or something like that.

Raf, is your hotel in Inverness?

Pingu - yep - Premier Inn Inverness West: Sat and Sunday night.

I did it 2012 - stunning scenery, hellish hills. Worst hills at 5 and 18 miles.

Great pre & post race food by Baxters.

b&b by Bute park are best as you can get into town and walk to pick up point where 30 odd double decker buses drive you to the start from the ice rink. There's a Premier Inn on River jut a few 100meters from finish area. 

Took Easyjet Bristol to Inv. Three of us flew up but just paid for one hold baggage between us, shoes & running kit taken in hand luggage just in case.

ironman next year but will be going back in 2015 just for the Nessie medal ! The 10 meter high inflatable Nessie at the finish is a welcome sight.

There is a 15/20 minute drive from Inverness air port into town. Not sure if a buss is available or whether taxi is the only option...

Or bus even

looks like I need to get myself organised. I just can't think further than Nice at the moment.

Hi everyone. Sorry I didn't find this forum earlier as I've now set up a separate forum called "Loch Ness marathon 2014" So if anyone wants to jumps ship! 

I did this marathon last year, so hope to beat last years time.
