Dear colleagues,

                  I was approached by a member of the Kinloch Rannoch Highland
Club Management Committee, who is also the Vice Convenor of Strathclyde Fire
Board, offering a special deal on weekly ownership of the Highland Club Lodges.
This special offer is open ONLY to REA members. Please find below some details of
the Club, its location, its facilities and the special deal on offer to us.

LOCATION
The Loch Rannoch Highland Club is a Timeshare Holiday complex of 85 properties
set in the picturesque village of Kinloch Rannoch in Perthshire. To get there you
follow the road to Perth then take the A9 for approx 30 miles to Pitlochry. Driving
through Pitlochry you branch off left at the end of town on the B846, passing the
famous Queens View of Loch Tummel on the 20 miles to Kinloch Rannoch. This is a
small village set on the banks of Loch Rannoch with an hotel, shops, petrol station,
medical centre and more. The whole Club site is divided into areas for ease of
location with names such as Lochside Lodges, Red Squirrel Lodges, Otter, Red Deer
and Highland Lodges.

THE LODGES
The Lodges are located all over the Club site; each one sited in such a way that they
each have a beautiful view of the surrounding hills and Loch Rannoch itself. They
range from Studio and one bedroom apartments as well as the larger two and three
bedroom Lodges for those who want to invite family or friends along on your chosen
week or weeks. In case any surprise guests come along each Lodge has a pull down
bed as well. This means that a two bedroom Lodge can sleep 6 and a three bedroom
Lodge can sleep 8 – big enough for any family or grandkids too!
The facilities inside each Lodge are of the highest standard with a sauna in each
Lodge; king size beds; en-suiite bedrooms; large lounge area with red leather suites,
separate dining area; crystal glasses, kitchen with full facilities of fridge, freezer,
dishwasher, solid oak units etc. there’s also a TV, dvd player, satellite facilities,
broadband access. There are games tables in each Lodge with chess, cribbage,
backgammon draughts etc inbuilt in each table. The Lodges have French windows
onto the verandas where tables and chairs as well as lounge chairs are available for
the owners to sit and take in the stunning views. Each Lodge has its own marked
parking space so there’s no fighting for a place to park. Towels and bedlinen can be
changed daily and are laundered on site by permanent staff, who also do all repairs,
maintain the grounds and are there to help all the owners should they have any queries
or problems.

FACILITIES
The Lodges are set on the shores of Loch Rannoch offering beautiful views and peace
and tranquillity. There are no jet skis on the loch or speedboats allowed on the water
to annoy the owners either. Fishing is allowed with trout, pike, perch and char
available in nearby Pitlochry and Dunalistair but permits are required and can be daily
or weekly for the angling enthusiast.
Organised events onsite each week include a Clan night, which is a family night and
is well frequented by the owners; a Quiz night; whisky appreciation (and tasting)
classes; make up classes for the ladies and more. There is an hotel on site and one in
the nearby village and there are no problems with vandalism or theft due to the
isolated location of the Club.
Nearby there are golf courses aplenty; unrestricted hillwalking; cycling on almost
traffic free roads; quad biking, adventure centres and more. Further afield there are
whisky distilleries aplenty; Culloden. Fort William, Aviemore. Mallaig, Blair Atholl.
Aberfeldy and many more places to visit.

LEGALITIES
Kinloch Rannoch in unlike any other Timeshare Holiday complex in that it is not
owned and run by a big business solely intent on squeezing as much mone y out of its
owners as they can. Loch Rannoch Highland Club is a co-operative, and as such it is
owned and managed by the owners of the weeks themselves. There is a Management
Committee, regular meetings and an AGM where the owners vote on things like
renovations, operating procedures, daily management, financial matters etc. if a
proposal doesn’t have 75% backing then it is rejected. This ensures that no hare-
brained schemes introduced and keeps the standard of the Club village high.
When you buy your chosen week then it is YOURS ! It becomes part of your estate
and all work is done legally by a solicitor. You can use it each year; invite family or
friends along on your week; hire it out if you choose not to use it one year; swap your
week for other weeks with other owners; bank your week if you don’t use it then
exchange it for weeks abroad and even pass it on to your kids in the future.

FINANCE
To purchase a week at similar facilities abroad could cost anything between £10,000 -
£20,000 initial purchase. To purchase similar facilities in Scotland could cost
anything between £8,000 - £15,000 initial purchase. The deal on offer to REA
members is an initial purchase price of between £100 –£500, depending on the size of
Lodge wanted. This represents an incredible saving on this one-off initial purchase
and is dependent on the size of Lodge chosen, not on the time of year.
Once you have purchased your week or weeks the only other charges are :-
   1) a one-off legal fee of approx £70 for the week to be assigned to yo u name and
        become part of your estate,
   2) a yearly maintenance fee of £325-£350 per chosen week – to cover water
        charges, community tax, Lodge upkeep, grounds maintenance, laundry etc. If
        you consider that it costs over £400 per week for hire of a caravan with little
        facilities then it puts it in perspective.
   3) Any phone calls made – this was introduced because our overseas cousins
        were abusing the free phone calls by chatting for hours to family and friends
        abroad.
   4) Electricity used for the week – again our overseas cousins were going out for
        the day leaving lights, fires TV’s etc on because it was free.
   5) Optional £100 membership of RCI or similar companies should you wish to
        swap your week for something abroad – over 36,000 options abroad all over
        the world.

WHAT TO DO NOW
If you have no interest in this offer then please just put it in the bin. If you are
interested – with nom commitment to buy – please contact Joe or Marina. Once we
get enough members I’ll arrange a day trip – probably on a Saturday – to visit the
Highland Club and let you see the Lodges and facilities described. There will also be
a member of the Management Committee available to show us round and answer any
of your questions.
It really is that genuine and that simple.
