Re: But did she pass her test is I want to know

She was a learner driver, learners do dodgy manoevers all the time, it's up to the qualified driver in the passenger seat to keep them, and those around them, safe. The qualified driver should have been prosecuted/fined in this case in my view.

Re: Scottish Highland and Islands - busy?

The island of Cumbrae has long been a favourite for daytrippers from Glasgow to go for a day's cycling, even non-cyclists. The road round the island is flat and only 10.5 miles long, you can hire all sorts of bikes there, and is very popular with families. But the other day a friend took her childr...

Re: Scottish Highland and Islands - busy?

The west highlands and inner hebrides have been very busy in summer for a long time. Accommodation has always been booked out in July and August. Skye seems to have been reported as being extra busy recently though, but then it's not a great island for cycling anyway. The creation of the North Coast...

Re: Queuing times for Mull ferry.

Not suitable for anything else other than pedestrians and cyclists is the even smaller ferry from Kilchoan in Ardnamurchan to Tobermory.. Takes about 10 vehicles too, depending on size. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=kilchoan+ferry&client=tablet-android-sonymobile&prmd=minv&source=ln...

Re: Packraft recommendation

How about a build your own kit packraft?
Much cheaper than a ready made one, but I guess there's a risk you might make a hash of it!

Re: The Adventure Show

There's already an Adventure Show thread here viewtopic.php?f=15&t=100652 which may be the reason the OP here got little response.

Re: Is Clumber Park Still Free to Cycle Through?

The National Trust for Scotland have been in the news this week for being a bit over zealous with their legal department. Apparently they own the trademark name 'Glencoe' as they own the Glencoe estate and have had a go at a small outdoor clothing company who make a 'Glencoe' jacket. http://www.scot...

Re: WHAT FOOD

Thanks for the tips & suggestions. I just didn't think about couscous at all. Now looking at all the stuff it can be cooked with to make a decent meal. I will certainly have porridge for brekers. If you have porridge then you are better to take medium oatmeal rather than rolled oats as it takes...
