I've been there. It's hell. All those shops ~shudder. The cinema was good though, from long-distant memory.

Um, yeah - Scotland: as far as stops go, I would say free camping no problem, but we will need to sort cooking arrangements for breakfasts at least for some of the remoter points. Also, I'm only the nearly perfect woman who likes cars and hates shopping, 'cos I *would* like access to hot water every couple of days or so, even if we're roughing it.

Much as I prefer wild camping, I think it would be difficult to do it if there are a lot of us. Perhaps best to plan it around camp sites, and if we do see the perfect spot on the way then we (or some of us) just make the decision then.

I'll have basic cooking facilities and water, so breakfast wouldn't be a problem. But yeah, showers would be needed from time to time...

I know the sort of thing you mean, but it needs one vital thing to make it warm that may be missing in Scotland - the Sun! :lol:

Excellent news Charlotte, it looks very nice in the Facebook pics. I've managed to insure my XM on a classic policy, so worth shopping around. Lancaster insurance or Sure Term direct are your best bets.

Thanks Mark, I'll give them a go! So hard to find an insurer that will take into consideration my years or driving STOOOPIDLY fast cars on a trade policy without incident.

Just in case Mr. Chidlow is super busy (I sincerely hope he is) I am a graphic designer/illustrator by trade also, so anything he can't find the time to do I'd happily volunteer for.

Seriously looking forward to this - although, not looking forward to pitching and packing up a soggy tent in the rain every day and driving around in a soggy condensationy car all day... I may have to chuck a mattress in the back of the XM and run an electric blanket off a spare battery!!

Go Go Team Ronin! :lol:
