Re: Off to Scotland

To Kandabongogirl,
I have sent you a PM thanking you for the Skye information sheet, but am also thanking you via this in case you don't get the PM.
It will definitely be used.

Sorry not to have met you but hope to in the future :D

Re: Off to Scotland

Thanks all for your thoughts on campsite availability.

Will chance it, as you suggest, in less popular areas, and once I know when I will be ready to go over to Skye, make enquiries then.

Re: Use of the Marquee

Looking forward to it.

It's a great meet, well worth attending, even if it's only for a short time.

We're a nice bunch :)

Re: Off to Scotland

Interesting articles, Ian. The first one is quite disturbing, the way some people behave is shocking. I know that I am a responsible traveller and camper. The main concern that I am now feeling is, I had planned to travel without pre-booking, but am now wondering if I will experience problems findin...

Re: Off to Scotland

More handy tips, thanks. I have been warned about keeping the fuel topped up as fuel stations can be few and far between. Also agree about spending money locally. They rely on us passing through. As for leaving cleaner than I arrived, I was a girl guide so goes without saying, but always worth sayin...

Re: Welsh Bash 2019

I agree with Marc, excellent week-end at St. Davids.
Barby on the beach and accompanying live music was great.
Thanks Ian and Marianne for organising it all.

Re: Any pop top Bongoers in or around Buckingham?

Hi Matt,

Been waiting to see if you get any replies near you, I'm near J11 on M25, with an AFT roof.
Not really near but just in case you're travelling along that route.

Re: Off to Scotland

Thanks Tootsmcfruits for your great suggestions and the additional photos from Muz. All helping me to plan my trip. Re the dreaded Midges, I have made lots of enquiries and the outcome seems to be that they are unavoidable, so I will be resorting to the strongest repellent I can find. Keep suggestio...

Re: Off to Scotland

Thanks Muz and Bob for your suggestions. My plans for the trip are to stay as long as I need to see as much as I can. Once I'm there I figure I need to do ias much as possible. Skye is definitely high on the list and I already have Lindisfarne pencilled in for on the way back down. At present my pla...

Off to Scotland

After leaving the Bongo Bash this June I am intending to make my way up to Scotland and explore as much as possible of that beautiful Country. I wondered if any of our Scottish members and others that have also visited can suggest any 'not to be missed' places and sights. Thanking you in anticipatio...
