Definately want a route that includes the old man of storr at some point - could that be combined with the short Quiraing loop but maybe not be the whole Trotternish loop on the second day as it will be a long drive home at the end.

Im up for camping as ive bought a better tent more suited to Scottish climate :?
Warmer than the other one Radek :lol:
Smaller than the big one and supposedly 3-4 man but best for 2-3 plus kit.So i have room for someone if they want to save a bit of cash on accommodation.Proper coffee included 8)

Now's your big chance gazz :wink:

I must admit to having a little natural luck :oops: I kind of stumble upon things really.I take a notion for something or to look for something i might want to buy and a bloody gift rears up :oops:

2 of mk 4's STD 3-4 man ,cotton fly,groundsheet you could line a pool with.
They came from a big independent school down in England that was doing a clearout.15 tents in total ,i could only afford two :(
Reasonably well cared for ,dried properly anyway :? and with these thats the most important thing.


Pics taken at 15:30 with the sun going down,so theyre a bit brighter than this in reality.



The one in the pics isn't the best one.im keeping that for myself :D
Here's another pic of the rubbishy one :wink: [feeling exceptionally smug :D]
IMHO the best tent for the UK 8) Quiet in high winds and very breathable in hot weather.
