Re: Glencoe mountain resort

Stayed up at Glenshee a couple of years ago for skiing and it was £5 a night for a hookup, free to park. Only about six HUs though when we went so it's pot luck.

Re: Tan Hill Inn Highest Pub

No need to book for staying but they did ask last time to give them a rough idea of numbers for eating
Im back middle of next week so can ring them then
might be a good idea to check they haven't got some biggish event on like last time we tried though.

Re: ADVICE SOUGHT: Which SIM free smartphone to buy

Have a look at GiffGaff for your SIM Mike. No contract and you can buy various priced Goodybags starting at a fiver. You can start at a low price and work up if it doesn't suit your requirements. It can be set to automatically renew each month if you want to so a bit like having a contract without a...

Re: just thought i would read up on this newish technology.

No point whingeing, it's here to stay like it or not. :(
Just get a 40 year old MG, no tax, £60 a year insurance, easily available bits are cheap as chips, everything can be fixed with a hammer and screwdriver (nearly), whats not to like. :D

Re: Trip to europe

Remember speed camera warnings systems are illegal in France. They will confiscate your equipment and fine you.

Re: Sky lift roof colour options

One thing to think about is how well you sleep. We had white (which makes it nice and bright in the day) on our Mushroom roof but as I find it almost impossible to sleep unless it's dark we never actually slept upstairs.

Re: Tan Hill Inn Highest Pub

Well it looks like the pub cocked up as Scouting for Girls were on on Friday not Saturday so we probably would have been ok
However with the weather situation its probably just as well we put it off
Have to try again
