Luggage Transport & Support Vehicles

If you are having your bags carried by one of the luggage carrying companies e.g. Brigantes or Sherpa please let us know in advance when it is to be delivered to us so that we can try to be here to accept it from the driver or make arrangements for them to leave it in a secure place.

If you are doing the C2C and have a support vehicle that may arrive at the hostel prior to the participants again, please let us know in advance if they are likely to be here before 4pm.
