Playing devil's advocate and tongue firmly in cheek.... (highfive) Nationalism anywhere else in the world outside of Scotland might be/have been called a teensie bit racist...


What about the zombie party rising from the dead and chasing the SNP out the highlands? :D


English attitudes to Scotland during the first indy ref pushed me strongly towards Yes. I'm sure as heck not going to vote No just in case some racists get upset.


45 to 55% isn’t a clear “no “ and in my books and I don’t care who says it is ;) If you talk about other people from the UK moving to Scotland and voting to remain then they are sadly outnumbered by the rapidly aging Scots who voted to remain. Nothing is inevitable but separation....seems that way at the mo.

Hope it helped to make your mind up where to go.


Hi watchspring That is helpful - thanks a lot. Best wishes


Hi Sorry never got back earlier. Answer you're looking for might depend on YOUR location and transport availability. I can thoroughly recommend the 3D castles Dumbarton, Doune and Dirleton. Dumbarton is relatively compact, has excellent views on clear days, but does have a downside as the internal paths and walkways are quite steep so might not be suitable to everyone. Doune is excellent with surrounding excellent walks .Look out for the coconuts. Dirleton is also excellent, especially if you live further east. The extra advantage it has [ if you're up for it] is it's close proximity to Tantallon castle. If you start out early[ish] you can capture two castles in one day. These castles don't have tearooms, so take a picnic with you, even if you've got to sit in your car because of the weather. If you will be travelling by car all four are normally easy to park at. If you've got a VAN, keep the music down. Have a good weekend. Hope it stays dry for you

I have use the St. Andrews free weekend the last 2 years to take the opportunity to visit Edinburgh Castle with the kids they love it, but too expensive at other times of the year. I was surprised that it is not too busy on the day. Well worth visiting some of Scotland's treasures.

Correct ! You pay for 12 months by DD and then get 6 months free = 18 months in total.


the way i have read it you pay the f irst twelve months then you get the other six months free total eighteen months membership.


[QUOTE=munnski;5256222]If you sign up for the 6months free do you have to pay for the year, ie 6months, or can you cancel after 6months? Also does anyone know what places you get into as the website doesn't say :? if you click Find your nearest property there's a download on the left hand side. A great saving as admission to Edinburgh castle is £12 per adult.


If you sign up for the 6months free do you have to pay for the year, ie 6months, or can you cancel after 6months? Also does anyone know what places you get into as the website doesn't say :? EDIT - Found it, you have to pay for the 1st 6months via direct debit and the last 6 months are free of the year package to anyone interested :)
