Where do I start, escape to afan was my first ever event and what an experience. The atmosphere was great the support from marshals, competitors and supporters was amazing. I 'only' did the sprint race and have got to say I've never pushed myself so hard. Afan is also an amazing place to host an event like this, I might even be back for next year!

Lapwing Lodge, Gleniffer Rd, Paisley PA2 8UL

Lapwing Lodge started Life as a Sanatorium for Coats Mill workers in 1910. At this time the veranda was open to the elements for the patients to be wheeled out into the fresh air to recover (fresh air was the only help until we got penicillin). It remained in their ownership until 1955.

In 1959 it was offered to Paisley Burgh and Renfrew County Council, but rejected, after which the building deteriorated. Ownership changed again this time to the Red Cross in 1960 and Paisley Scouts used the grounds for camping.

In 1968 Renfrewshire County Scout Council negotiated a 20 year lease from The Health Board.

In 1988 Renfrew and Inverclyde Regional Scout Council bought Peesweep from Renfrew District Council, and started to improve the deteriorated building and add to the accommodation and site.

The name was changed in 1983 from Peesweep to Lapwing Lodge.

There will be parking located at the site and it will be a a small fee of £5 per car. Please stay safe and travel in accordance to all advice.
