Re: Camping beside Loch Quoich

Re: 18th Sept.

How many times have I said I accept we can't know what will happen after the 18th. Salmond seems to think he has a pretty good idea what is likely.

The boots helped a lot, and he is more mobile now. A new lease of life for the old hell-hound to hunt souls through the ...

Re: Galloway Corbetts

Re: Camping at Inverie

They prefer you to camp at Long Beach which is about a mile along the road to the east of the pub.There`s a camping shelter for cooking in and a compost toilet.Think it is about £2 a night or something.Either that or head into the hills.
