    I wish everyone a very safe and pleasant journey and hope you all have a great time. Don't forget to keep us updated with progress, and don't let Andy near any marine causeways, islands, etc. as we don't want to end up with a new Mulberry harbour! ;) (y)

    We're far more likely to tempt him across to a dangerous place and then run like heck! ;)

    Encourage him onto that line of boulders leading out across the water towards the sunset to get THE shot of the week.;)

    It'll all be too late when he realises that he's standing on "Nessies" back! :eek::exit::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Just to confirm, the owner will be at the house at 4pm tomorrow to welcome us and sort out the keys etc. Unless something goes drastically wrong, we should be there by 4pm and I seem to remember others mentioning that they should also have arrived by then.

    I'm only 2 hours away from the house tonight so should be there for 4 as well unless something has gone drastically wrong (or right I guess)

    "si tu plait" if you please young man.;)

    "Vous" is very formal and indeed the correct way to address someone in authority ( like me!:D) or if you don't know them, however between friends and family it's the norm to "tu" each other.

    French lesson over ( I'll send you the bill for my time!:LOL:) , Back to business / topic / Scotland……………...

    Could be a "WET out" as opposed to a "WHITE out" then:D

    Forecasts are often hit and miss in mountain areas; blimey, if i took notice down here then i'd often not venture further than the village.

    If it rains just take it in turns to assist each other with brolloies …..there's always a way around the wet stuff even for togging, albiet not particularly enjoyable but you've all made an effort to get there so ….GET THEM NESSIE PICS TAKEN:p:D:D

    If it's any consolation, it's wet here too and forecast to possibly remain unsettled for several days……..Rain in Scotland is one thing but I live in the South of France!!!:confused::(:D:D

    It's been lovely here in Cheshire today. Sunshine and whilst not warm, not cold either. Maybe it's creeping towards you?

    Have a fab time :)

    Ideas for sombre shots? If near Glencoe a massacre took place h'mm Commander was Robert Campbell and the victims were mainly Macdonalds.
