Re: Scottish Bongo Bash 2017

Giving the inn plenty of custom will be a bit difficult for me given the fact that I am a lone driver and the Scottish drink / drive limit is only half that of England should the meet be for Saturday night only as it would appear to be the plan. The Scottish way of getting around this problem these ...

Re: Scottish Bongo Bash 2017

We were last in Fife in 2011 when we were at Ellie Holiday Park. Some of us did the chain walk when we where there so it was a good meeting. Last years Bash near Dunbar was a bit too close to home for me and not my type of campsite. Our meets only really work when we are able to all pitch together, ...

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

I would have thought that it would be the other way round. This is Scotland remember and the drink / drive limits are lower than in England. When we have meets at Red squirrel campsite we tend to get sloshed on Friday night then stick to water or Iron Bru on the Saturday night to avoid loosing our d...

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

Wots wrong with Scottish tap water. I've been using the fluoride favoured stuff from local lochs to make my tea for 15 years and it has not killed me yet.

But its Highland Spring Scottish bottled water for my whisky. None of that dreadful French stuff.

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

No need for a hook up after surviving Red Squirrel campsite meets loads of times and the occasional wild camps. The only problem is water, is there an outside tap available at or near the pub or do we have to bring our own water with us?

Re: Facebook

That's what I have done Brian. But the same requests keep coming up again and again. If it was pointed out somewhere just where they could find the information they needed it would free up Facebook for other purposes. Unlike Bongo Fury Facebook posts are not sorted out into categories, it can become...

Re: Facebook

Although It is now a few years since I upgraded to a motorhome and therefore no longer have need of the technical assistance that Bongo Fury provides. I still contribute to the Forum to keep in contact with the friends that I have made through owning a Bongo and regularly attend local meets. That sa...

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

I came across this post today on the Scottish Wild Campers Facebook Page. "Park in the large car park at the top of Wanlockhead village. Short walk to the Wanlockhead Inn, where you can also camp overnight. Postcode for GPS is ML12 6UT" If this is right it would seem that if you do not need a hookup...

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

So Brian is offering Mike a lift to the pub from the pods of about 10 yards. Has mike lost his zimmer frame ??? Is he really getting forgetful in his old age or is Brian actually offering a lift all the way from Wiggin.

Winter Wheels and Autosocks now arrived. Question now of beating the snow up the slope to the main road to get to the tyre place to have them fitted to my motorhome on Thursday. Then I am all set for the trip.

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

any chance of June coming along as well??
Doubtful at the moment. She is having physiotherapy treatment on her bad back and will not travel very far at the moment.

I trust that you and Christine are keeping well.

Re: Waeco CF 18 fridge freezer

Not a good time of the year for organizing a relay Mike. But something may be able to be done if you are thinking of attending the meet at Wanlockhead next march, I have got this meet penciled in myself. I just home that your fridge does not have to spend 6 months in my garage like the last relay it...

Lettershaw farm is 7.6 miles away from the pub. We are going to need a non drinking driver for members who stay at this campsite.

Re: Highest Pub in Scotland, 11th-12th March 2017

The area around there is owned by the Duke of Buccleuch (who lives in Drumlanrig castle) Not quite correct MUZ. The Duke does own loads of land in Southern Scotland and Drumlanrig Castle is one of his many piles. But he actually lives at Bowhill House, another of his piles just outside Selkirk, whi...
