Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

The last one BYG is almost right Charles (the meaning is the same), but the other isn't, though one of the words is.

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

Given a refresher course, I could do Three Men in a Boat , but never Candide. . Grandson had to give a brief modern history of a non European country in a post-grad course, but luckily was all ready with Iran that he had done as an undergrad. More cunning tricks. If you are aware of LC , you will su...

Re: Can I have a "P" please Bob - Scotland (2nd edition)

They don't give much help. I have been combing their possessions (they don't show manY0and can only think there is a different way of describing some of them. Will have another go. I was going to say Balls of Stone, but realise this isn't what they are, but where they came from.

Re: Ben Nevis

Far preferred the Can Mor Dearg Arrete way, though wasn't expecting to repeat it when a friend compleated on Carn Mor Dearg. Having postponed this due to torrential rain on his penultimate Munro, we joked that nothing could stop him this time. However he could hardly walk when he got up in the morni...

Re: Scotland's Watershed part minus 1b Tussocks no Thunder.

I must say, you take a very purist view of "compleating" the watershed. I think anyone in their right minds would have retreated in the face of the storms you experienced on the previous occasion you were here! BTW I've had flying ant swarms on a couple of hill summits recently. I know th...

Re: Scotland's Watershed part minus 1b Tussocks no Thunder.

This sounds really tough. This part of the world is bad enough on the "paths" without having to wander for ever through tussocks.

Re: Hello, all!

Have just looked at your forecast 40 degrees, that is horrendous. We almost managed that in Paris for grandson's graduation and were quite happy to sit and listen to long speeches and lists in French for hours as it mean Aircon. Scotland will be quite a shock to the system. Enjoy your time here, and...
