    Ah the luxuries of being a 3rd world country...Yes, I often wonder what it would have been to live in America a hundred years ago....

    Don't mention the midges, the midges, oh my god they eat you alive.
    12,000 people, just about enough to fill the stand behind the one goal at Old Trafford. It was bad enough on the IOM with 75,000 alcoholics clinging to a rock in the middle of the Irish Sea. That's about one Old Trafford full.
    No, it's really very nice. Brodick is it?
    Now we don't want any jokes about those beautiful woolly Aran pullovers and sheep thank, nor about inbreeding either.

    Midges are our friends...they are known as the Guardians of the Highlands...if it werent for them the highlands would be crawling with Yanks and i know which one of those two options i find more irritating...lets be thankful for that..

    yes, those are the mountains that rise up above Brodick...i heartily reccomend a visit with your tent...go before June and there are no midgies.

    i loved the IOM analogy...but the Aran sweater brigade get thier wool from the Aran islands off Galway bay...not in the Firth of Clyde.

    MP...now, now... you didn't think before you started pecking at your keyboard.....Think of your previous posts and you comments concerning every topic that has been considered here and how you have responded, then take another look at what you just posted... I'm trying to help you save face here buddy... ;)

    By the way, it wouldn't be "sunnier" here...need I remind you of our tumultuous weather again??? :cool:

    Americans absolutely adore Scotland because it is so beautiful, apart from Zap it seems.

    It was the last glimpses of the westerly sun setting on the buildings in your first photo that put me on to it.
    Did two weeks years ago all along the west coast and finished up in Ross and Cromarty. Had a few Caledonian McBraynes to the different islands as well. Stunning holiday, great people.
    Managed to get the car stuck in a ditch on a single track road, nothing serious. Two old girls stopped and towed me out with a classic Armstrong Siddley Sapphire. I tried to say no for the sake of their car, but they weren't having any of it and insisted.
