Default Celts...

Looks like I might (...just might) have a trip up to the scottish highlands in the near future, and Im thinking of taking the bike so I might make a long weekend of it as I've not actually been north of Bolton before! Been lookin at pictures on internet and it looks like you have some nice roads up there. Any recommendations? Going by some of the pictures it looks like it could be one of the nicest looking bits of England!

Can't wait to see what our Scottish correspondents have to say about Scotland being one of the nicest parts of England.

If my reading of history is correct, the Legions that built Hadrians wall were East European....

Jonny Fantastic, you really need to brush up on your geography

Secondly, SCOTLAND is a fantastic place for a biking holiday. I've just got back from a week there with a good friend and I really enjoyed. Apart from the midges!!!!!!!! Get yourself to the Clachaig inn at Glencoe

http://www.clachaig.com/

then on to the Isle of Skye. Here's a photo from our tent in Portree looking towards to Cuillin Hills. It's a fantastic place and, just like Arnie, I'll be back




You could always visit one of these places if you like Whisky.

FT doesn't get out much, partly because of his meds.

Mostly because of his jumper.

scottish roads are awesome, but this time of year, take midge repellant or suffer the consequences!

Thats it.... I will get on to Brussels straight away... all their eggheads and they missed that one easy way to make us all safer in one fell swoop... we must all wear jumpers like yours to make sure no one misses us... and at night we could have ones that glow in the dark... Goverment issue Tucky Jumpers...
